National Purchasing Partners Government Division (NPPGov) is a cooperative purchasing organization owned by Virginia Mason, a nonprofit healthcare center in Seattle, WA. A cooperative purchasing organization is a cost savings vehicle available to public entities offering publicly solicited contracts. Contracts are competitively solicited by a Lead Public Agency in accordance with government purchasing regulations. The contracts include “piggybacking” language allowing utilization by NPPGov members, government entities across the nation. NPPGov is not a reseller, but rather a channel that offers publicly awarded agreements to local and state Government entities throughout the nation. NPPGov members are eligible to purchase through our competitively solicited contracts directly with awarded suppliers, saving time and money.
Want to Become a Vendor?
NPPGov contracts are established through a public Request For Proposal (RFP) process conducted by one of NPPGov’s public entity partners. The public entity serves as the “Lead Public Agency.” Lead Agencies may be a fire department, city or any other governmental entity. The RFP includes language indicating that the vendor’s response will be available for all NPPGov members, thus establishing the availability for nationwide use of the resulting contracts. Vendors who successfully compete in the RFP process and are subsequently awarded a Master Price Agreement with the Lead Public Agency and execute a Vendor Administration Agreement with NPPGov are then marketed to NPPGov membership.
