Heavy duty vehicle lift leader Stertil-Koni has announced that it has been awarded the National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) ValuePoint Master Agreement for Vehicle Lifts and Garage Associated Equipment.
Here’s what makes this award really special. The new agreement, which in Stertil-Koni's instance represents a contract extension, enables customers nationwide -- including municipalities, state agencies, local governments, public works departments, school districts and more -- to purchase the company’s heavy duty vehicle lifting systems by means of NASPO’S streamlined, expedited process.
Vendors who receive a contract award from NASPO ValuePoint – a nationally-focused cooperative purchasing program – have already participated in the organization’s competitive bidding process. Thus, awardees have been thoroughly screened and vetted to provide the highest quality products, at competitive pricing, to NASPO’s extensive customer base. NASPO is made up of the directors of the central procurement offices in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia and the territories of the United States.
The new NASPO ValuePoint Master Agreement for Vehicle Lifts and Garage Associated Equipment, No. 05316, begins February 10, 2017, and is valid for two years, with an extension option for an additional three years.
In making today’s announcement, Stertil-Koni president, Dr. Jean DellAmore, stated: “Since 2006, Stertil-Koni has been proud to be associated with the NASPO ValuePoint organization. It goes without saying that we are honored to have been selected for this significant contract. The new award is a true win-win for multiple parties -- NASPO and its customer base, as well as Stertil-Koni and our company’s dedicated network of exclusive distributors across North America.”
Concluded DellAmore, “Government procurement contracts, such as NASPO, represent very important purchasing vehicles that serve our customers every single day. We are extremely honored to build on our long-term and successful relationship with NASPO.
