NASPO ValuePoint (NVP) is a cooperative purchasing program facilitating public procurement solicitations and agreements using a lead-state model. It is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing State Chief Procurement Officers with the support and procurement resources they need.
NASPO ValuePoint provides the highest standard of excellence in public cooperative contracting. By leveraging the leadership and expertise of all states and the purchasing power of their public entities, NASPO ValuePoint delivers the highest valued, reliable and competitively sourced contracts - offering public entities outstanding prices.
Started in 1992, NASPO ValuePoint is the cooperative purchasing arm of the National Association of State Procurement Officials, or NASPO.
NASPO is a non-profit association dedicated to strengthening the procurement community through education, research, and communication. It is made up of the directors of the central purchasing offices of the 50 states, District of Columbia and territories of the United States. The NASPO purchasing officials provide leadership for professional public purchasing, improve the quality of purchasing and procurement, exchange information, and cooperate to attain greater efficiency and economy.
All states, the District of Columbia, and US Territories are eligible to use NASPO ValuePoint contracts. Within each state, the State Procurement Official determines if his/her state is eligible.
Each state determines, in accordance with its own state statutes, whether it will use each NASPO ValuePoint contract and which entities within their state may use each NASPO ValuePoint contract, including state agencies, higher education institutions and political subdivisions. In some states non-profit organizations are eligible.
