The resulting portfolio for child safety seats and other child transport mechanisms for all participating states/Using Agencies originated from a Bid Solicitation issued by the Procurement Bureau (Bureau), Division of Purchase and Property (Division), Department of the Treasury in furtherance with the National Association of State Procurement Official (NASPO) ValuePoint Cooperative Purchasing Program on behalf of various state agencies and Cooperative Purchasing Program Participants.

The purpose of the Bid Solicitation was to solicit Quotes {Proposals} for the establishment of a NASPO ValuePoint Master Agreement (Master Agreement) with qualified manufactures and/or distributers.

Master Blanket Purchase Orders (Blanket P.O.s) {Contracts} to those responsible Vendors {Bidders} whose Quotes {Proposals}, conforming to the Bid Solicitation are most advantageous to the State, price and other factors considered have been awarded.

One (1)Prime Vendor {Contractor} (Prime) and at least one (1) Alternate Vendor {Contractor}  (Alternate) have been awarded for each of the child safety seat categories.  

The State of New Jersey (State) has extended the Blanket P.O.s {Contracts} awarded to the Division's Cooperative Purchasing Program participants. These participants include quasi-State entities, counties, municipalities, school districts, volunteer fire departments, first aid squads, independent institutions of higher learning, County colleges, and State colleges and all NASPO ValuePoint Cooperative Participating Entities.

The objective of the Bid Solicitation was to obtain the best value, and in some cases achieve more favorable pricing, than may be obtainable by an individual state or local government entity through the use of collective volume of potential purchases.

The savings realized by the potential Vendor {Contractor} in managing one (1) comprehensive NASPO VALUEPOINT Master Agreement rather than numerous state and local Blanket P.O.s {Contracts} results in the most attractive service level and discounts available in the marketplace.

The Master Agreement resulting from this Bid Solicitation may be used by state governments (including state departments, agencies, institutions), institutions of higher education, political subdivisions (i.e., colleges, school districts, counties, cities, etc.), and other eligible entities subject to approval of the individual state procurement director and compliance with local statutory and regulatory provisions.
