Using the federal government’s buying power, state and local governments can save money when they buy:
Information technology (IT) software
GSA makes this possible through a program called Cooperative Purchasing. State and local governments are encouraged to place orders for IT through Schedule 70.
IT Schedule 70 has a nationwide network of industry partners, some of whom may be located in your state. By purchasing through local vendors you are able to keep your IT spend within your state or local jurisdiction.
If you have questions about how your local government can take advantage of Schedule 70 benefits, contact our help center at email@example.com or (855) ITaid4U (482-4348).
Thousands of technology businesses sell to state and local governments. To find them, go to GSA eLibrary and choose IT Schedule 70 special item numbers (SINs) that say “Subject to Cooperative Purchasing.” Select the industry partners who display the "COOP PURCH" logo. These businesses have indicated that they sell to state and local governments.
Using eBuy: State and local government entities may also use eBuy to create an online Request for Quotation (RFQ) that helps you make the best qualified purchase decisions.
