Public purchasing organization
National IPA is a cooperative purchasing organization established for public agencies with the specific purpose of reducing procurement costs by leveraging group volume. All master agreements are publicly solicited, awarded through an RFP process, and held by a Principal Procurement Agency. Each agreement includes the required language allowing intergovernmental (“piggybacking”) contract usage. It is an optional use program with no fee to participate. Agencies eliminate duplication of effort and save time, resources and money through the cooperative agreements.
