There are many benefits to ValuePoint cooperative contracting. Collectively, states are able to leverage their spending through a single solicitation that obtains best value pricing and superior contract terms, with public entity values in mind. ValuePoint emphasizes best value from its contractors considering price, quality, reliability, warranties, and service, while protecting states’ interests with favorable terms and conditions. Contractors also benefit considerably by avoiding the repetitive bid preparation expenses of bidding time and again on the same solicitations for different public entities throughout the country. Contractors also factor in greater volumes for multiple jurisdictions when determining their pricing. These savings are then passed along to end users.
