My state requires government agencies to bid everything. Can government agencies in my state use this program without going out to bid?
Yes. This contract has been competitively bid by a government agency. Through the Joint Powers Authority or an inter-local agreement, local governments can "piggy-back" this competitively bid contract through U.S. Communities. This satisfies the competitive bid requirements in most states. See state by state laws on intergovernmental purchasing.

Our agency has already negotiated a discount through Fisher Science Education; will I receive better pricing if we buy through the U.S. Communities and Fisher Science Education program?
Absolutely. Fisher Science Education has made the commitment to U.S. Communities that the discount provided on the U.S. Communities contract for science supplies is the best contract discount we can offer to any school district nationwide.

If my agency already has an account with Fisher Science Education, do I need to set up a new account?
No. After working with your Fisher Science Education Sales Rep to adopt the contract, the pricing terms will be added to your existing account(s), meaning any orders your agency places will automatically receive the discount.
