The National Purchasing Partners Government Division (NPPGov) has awarded John Deere Construction & Forestry a three-year construction equipment contract. It is the only OEM awarded such a contract in NPPGov’s most recent round of contract awards.
NPPGov works with non-profit and public entities as a “cooperative purchasing organization” to provide access to RFP-process contracts. It is made up of two specialized programs, FireRescue GPO, which serves the fire and rescue market, and Law Enforcement GPO, which serves law enforcement and emergency communications and management. NPP is owned by the non-profit hospital Virginia Mason, based in Seattle, Washington.
“Cooperative purchasing is the way of the future for many state and local government agencies and nonprofit organizations, and we’re looking forward to offering our line of construction equipment to NPPGov members,” says John Deere State Contract Manager Mark Deakyne. “The contract simplifies equipment purchasing while complying with procurement requirements, providing organizations peace of mind when purchasing their next piece of construction equipment.”
Only NPPGov members can use the contract and must reference contract number PS16001. NPPGov registration is available here and is free, with no obligation to purchase.
