Who can participate?
States, State Agencies, Counties, Cities, Schools, Colleges and Universities, Non-Profits and Special Districts.
Does my agency need to be a member of ASBO, NACo, USCM, NIGP or NLC to participate?
No. Any qualified agency can participate in the program.
My state requires local governments to bid everything. Can local governments 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.
What does a government agency need to do in order to participate?
Complete the free online registration found on the U.S. Communities website. During the registration process, you will be asked to mark suppliers you are interested in. The suppliers that you select will contact you with detailed pricing and ordering information.
Is there a fee associated with joining U.S. Communities?
No, there are no costs or user fees to the local agency to participate or register.
If my agency already has an account with Insight Public Sector, do I need to set up a new account?
No. Contact your Insight Public Sector Account Manager to have the U.S. Communities program linked to your existing account.
Does the competitive pricing apply, regardless of quantity?
Using Insight Public Sector and the U.S. Communities program assures an agency they are getting a very competitive price on any size order. There are no costs, minimum quantity requirements or spend limits associated with using the Insight Public Sector U.S. Communities program.
How does it save time and money?
The key value for the agency is resource savings. On average, U.S. Communities participating agencies will save 5% over traditional procurement practices. Most agencies today are spread too thin. Agencies are downsizing administrative departments, and retiring or departing purchasing and maintenance positions are left unfilled. The U.S. Communities program provides a mechanism to save the time and costs associated with obtaining quotes or preparing bids. The time savings allow the department to accomplish its work tasks more efficiently with the personnel on hand.
How to Obtain U.S. Communities Pricing?
To obtain U.S. Communities pricing from our suppliers, you must first register to establish your agency’s eligibility for the program. Registration is free and there is no obligation of any kind. During the registration process, you can request contact from any supplier(s) you would like. Any time after registration, just visit the “Products and Suppliers” page to request supplier contact. Each supplier you select will contact you to explain the special U.S. Communities pricing and other exclusive benefits available to public agencies and nonprofits through the U.S. Communities contracts. Once you have registered, you may also choose to purchase from a portion of our suppliers through the U.S. Communities e-commerce portal which allows you to purchase from several suppliers at the same time.
How can my agency participate in the U.S. Communities program?
Complete the online registration.
Can more than one person at my agency register?
Yes, additional users can register by completing the standard registration process; the system will automatically unify all registrations that use the same TIN under one agency account. Alternately, existing users can add new users from within their account.
Is it possible to enter into a purchase or service agreement that has a term that extends past the current contract expiration date?
Yes, because the agreement was set up in the current contract award period, all terms, conditions and pricing for any agreement executed prior to the end of the current contract award #4400006644 will be honored and remain in effect for the term of that agreement. This includes any and all Customer Facing Agreements (CFAs).
