What is NASPO ValuePoint? NASPO is the National Association of State Procurement Officials, an organization comprised of Chief Procurement Officials of all fifty states to promote public procurement nationally. The NASPO ValuePoint facilitates the administration of the NASPO cooperative contracting group of state Chief Procurement Officials for the benefit of state departments, institutions, as well as other eligible agencies including cities, counties, and governmental organizations.
Why use NASPO ValuePoint? The idea behind NASPO ValuePoint is to use a state-led procurement process, from a variety of states, to create master agreements. This state-led procurement process ensures that NASPO ValuePoint contracts are solicited and developed in such a way that follow state government requirements, such as being competitively bid, and other state procurement rules so that all states can use them, leveraging the expertise and buying power of multiple states, and other participating entities to produce the best value contracts.
