U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance (U.S. Communities) is the leading national government purchasing cooperative, providing world class government procurement resources and solutions to your local and state government agencies, school districts (K-12), higher education institutes, and nonprofits looking for the best overall supplier government pricing.

The U.S. Communities program provides local agencies in the U.S. with competitively bid public contracts for various products and services. Most local agencies are allowed to piggyback on a contract competitively bid by another public agency, thereby eliminating the need to re-bid. Through the buying power of large government purchasers in the U.S. Communities program, all local government agencies and nonprofit organizations receive access to excellent pricing and contract terms.

U.S. Communities offers local agencies:

  • No sign up fees
  • No user fees
  • No minimum purchasing requirements
  • Best overall supplier government pricing
  • Quality brands
  • Integrity and experience
  • Management by public-purchasing professionals
  • Green eco-friendly products
