Law Enforcement GPO
Public Safety GPO is a program of NPPGov providing public safety departments access to publicly solicited contracts from vendors who supply goods and services. Contracts are created through a public RFP process by a Lead Public Agency that allows members to "piggyback" on the contract, eliminating the need to complete their own RFP process. Public Safety GPO staff and legal counsel facilitate this process and provide necessary documentation and support.

Access to our cooperative contracts is complimentary with no purchasing obligations. Membership is available to public agencies and organizations contracted to provide law enforcement and related services including emergency communications. Individual officer discounts are also available.
In addition to saving you time and money, public safety GPO is owned in part by non-profit hospitals, the program generates revenue that helps support medical research at the Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason (BRI) in Seattle, WA.
How it works
NPPGov uses a Lead Public Agency to solicit and award contracts through a public Request for Proposal process. “Piggybacking” language is inserted into the RFP and resulting contract, allowing members to utilize these contracts for public procurement purchases.
