WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – February 26, 2015. U.S. Communities, the nation’s the leading national government purchasing cooperative serving local government and not-for-profit organizations, is excited to welcome the National Governors Association as the newest sponsor of the U.S. Communities program.
The National Governors Association (NGA) is the bipartisan organization of the nation’s governors. Through NGA, governors share best practices, speak with a collective voice on national policy and develop innovative solutions that improve state government and support the principles of federalism. As part of NGA’s continuing efforts to help governors make government work in the most effective and efficient way possible, NGA recently became a sponsor of U.S. Communities.
Kevin Juhring, General Manager at U.S. Communities, commented on NGA’s decision to be a sponsor. “State procurement officials are familiar with U.S. Communities and state agency utilization of U.S. Communities contracts to procure goods, services, and solutions grew 43 percent in 2014,” he said. “NGA’s decision to sponsor U.S. Communities further validates the value our contracts can provide to state agencies.”
U.S. Communities is proud to have NGA as a new sponsor. U.S. Communities strives to deliver best public procurement practices while driving value to governments and delivering significant savings of tax dollars. U.S. Communities will partner with NGA to help states meet and exceed the best public procurement practices and assure participating state agencies of the value they can realize when accessing U.S. Communities contracts.
