The Western States Contracting Alliance (WSCA) was the group of 15 western states in NASPO that conducted cooperative purchasing. Despite having a separate name, the WSCA cooperative was a NASPO program. It was the oldest of NASPO’s cooperative alliances, having been started in 1992. NASPO also created the NASPO Cooperative in 2006.  In 2013, as WSCA became more successful and cooperative efforts grew, NASPO consolidated its two cooperatives and created the single member, non-profit, limited liability company, the NASPO ValuePoint Cooperative Purchasing Organization, to meet the increasing needs for resource assistance in cooperative procurement among the states nationally.
