NASPO ValuePoint is the nation’s largest public cooperative contracting organization. All of the cooperative contracts are led by one of the 50 states on behalf of the other states. ValuePoint is a non-profit subsidiary of the National Association of State Procurement Officials to provide states, local governments, public educational entities, etc. with best value contracts to support their important missions.
What is WSCA?
The Western States Contracting Alliance (WSCA) was the group of 15 western states in NASPO that conducted cooperative purchasing. Despite having a separate name, the WSCA cooperative was a NASPO program. It was the oldest of NASPO’s cooperative alliances, having been started in 1993. NASPO also created the NASPO Cooperative in 2006. In 2013, as WSCA became more successful and cooperative efforts grew, NASPO consolidated its two cooperatives and created the single member, non-profit, limited liability company, the NASPO ValuePoint Cooperative Purchasing Organization, to meet the increasing needs for resource assistance in cooperative procurement among the states nationally.
