National Signs was recently awarded a contract through the Choice Partners Cooperative. This co-op enables companies like ours to enter directly into the bidding process for government and education work across the United States.
What is the Choice Partners Co-Op?
The Choice Partners national purchasing cooperative offers procurement and contract solutions to meet government purchasing requirements. Currently, Choice Partners has over 1,800 members in 40 U.S. states. 90% of members are in education, while 10% are other government entities and non-profits. Members include:
- State agencies
- Other government entities
Specific to our local region in Houston, members gain immediate access to legal contracts, vendors, and shared services solutions from the purchasing cooperative of Harris County Department of Education.
Benefits of Our Choice Partners Contract
Choice Partners is essentially a tool for procurement. When it comes to government and education, procurement can be a complex and time-consuming process that often requires a large set of standards to be met.
Choice Partners helps expedite this process by matching organizations to vendors that are vetted and trusted. They make sure most of the work is done for you, so it’s a breeze to get the supplies that your business or organization needs.
Our Choice Partners contract states that our company has satisfied all national and state requirements for competitive procurement. Essentially, we have been granted the opportunity to bypass the standard procurement process, which increases efficiency in order to save co-op members and vendor partners time and money. That’s something we can all appreciate!
The products we are approved to provide to CP members include:
- ADA Signage and Plaques
- Safety Supplies and Equipment
