AOPD has a national office supplies and services contract with the National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance (NCPA) that was re-awarded in May 2017. NCPA is a leading national government purchasing co-op that works to reduce the costs of goods and services by leveraging the purchasing power of public agencies in all 50 states.
NCPA contracts are available for use to over 90,000 agencies nationwide in both the public and nonprofit sectors, and many entities are unaware that they may be eligible for these discounts. Eligible groups include:
- School districts (including K-12, charter schools, and private K-12)
- Higher Education (including universities, community colleges, private colleges, and technical/ vocational schools)
- Cities, counties, and any local government
- State agencies
- Healthcare organizations
- Church and religious groups
- Nonprofit corporations
NCPA works with public agencies, who act as lead agencies and competitively solicit master contracts. Contracts are awarded based on quality, performance and, most importantly, pricing.
