Cooperative Purchasing

Cooperative Purchasing allows state and local government to make purchases under the GSA Information Technology (IT) Schedule 70, the GSA Security Schedule 84, and from contracts under the Consolidated Schedule that contain IT special item numbers (SINs). Cooperative Purchasing is unique in that it does not place restrictions on the type of purchase – state and local government may make purchases under Schedule 70, Schedule 84, and IT SINs under the Consolidated Schedule at any time, for any reason.

Disaster Recovery Purchasing

Disaster Recovery Purchasing allows state and local government to make purchases under any GSA Schedule to be used to facilitate recovery from nuclear, biological, chemical, or radiological attacks; terrorism; or major disasters declared by the President under any GSA Schedule.

1122 Program

1122 Program allows state and local government to purchase specific equipment under select GSA Schedules for use in the performance of counter-drug activities. For a list of available equipment, and more information on the program please click here to visit the GSA website.

Public Health Emergencies

Public Health Emergencies allows state and local government to make purchases under any GSA Schedule when expending Federal grant funds in response to Public Health Emergencies declared by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
