National IPA contracts are available for use and benefit all entities that must comply with state purchasing laws (state, cities, counties, non-profits, public and private schools, colleges and universities and all governmental entities).
National IPA is a national governmental purchasing cooperative able to leverage one of the largest pools of purchasing potential. The organization competitively bids and awards contracts to national vendors in accordance with purchasing procedures mandated by state procurement laws and regulations. This means equal pricing for the smallest entities and the largest buyers.
National IPA was established under state law to help governmental entities operate efficiently and economically. Utilizing a National IPA contract means the buyer deals directly with the vendor, as normally, using the National IPA contract as their own.
