All of our Master Agreements are awarded by a lead state using a competitive procurement process (typically an RFP). First, the lead state works with volunteers from other states to form a sourcing team. The sourcing team collaborates to develop the RFP and the evaluation of the proposals. To become a NASPO ValuePoint contractor, a lead state must first solicit a proposal for the goods and services your company provides. The sourcing team would then evaluate the responses to the solicitation and determine the best offers.
NASPO ValuePoint will update the information for all open solicitations being conducted by a lead state. Contractors are encouraged to periodically monitor the NASPO ValuePoint website for upcoming opportunities. Typically, participating states also advertise a NASPO ValuePoint solicitation through their own solicitation methods.
Benefits of being a NASPO ValuePoint Contractor
Become a contractor and benefit considerably by avoiding the repetitive bid preparation expenses, eliminating the need for repetitive bids on the same solicitations for different jurisdictions. Contractors can factor in greater volumes for multiple jurisdictions when determining their pricing. These savings are then passed along to the states.
