We are proud to offer various purchasing contracts to simplify and expedite the buying process. These contracts are nationally available, competitively bid, and are free for all public agencies. Utilizing a purchasing contract, such as U.S. Communities, gives the owner more control of the project to ensure it is executed to your standards and meets your budget expectations.
How it works can be a bit confusing to those who are not familiar with the program, but it is easy to master. First the agency must register by going online to www.uscommunities.org. There are no fees to register or to use the program. After registering and electronically executing the MICPA (Master Intergovernmental Cooperative Purchasing Agreement), you are ready to start participating in all lead agency contracts. The program can be used to purchase a myriad of products and can be used as often as desired.
