What is FireRescue GPO?​

FireRescue GPO is a program of NPPGov, a Cooperative Purchasing Organization that offers cost savings to public entities. 

FireRescue GPO facilitates the creation of publicly solicited contracts on behalf of its tens of thousands of government members nationwide. These contracts are publicly solicited by a lead public agency in accordance with government purchasing regulations and include “piggybacking” language, which allows government agencies to use these contracts in place of their own RFP process.

FireRescue GPO members save time and money by making purchases through these publicly solicited contracts.
