To better serve its members, Western Fire Chiefs Association (WFCA) has formed a new cooperative procurement partnership with Sourcewell, one of the largest government cooperative procurement organizations in North America.
In 2002, WFCA created the FireRescue GPO in response to a growing demand for group purchasing options within the fire service. The FireRescue GPO partnered with NPPGov to provide purchasing solutions to members across the nation. WFCA and NPPGov mutually agreed to end their relationship effective October 31, 2019.
Sourcewell (formerly NJPA) is a government organization providing cooperative purchasing solutions across the United States and Canada to over 50,000 public-agency members.
With over 400 competitively awarded vendors, members have access to contracts for fire apparatus, ambulances, fleet vehicles and products, facilities (MRO), furniture, office supplies, leasing services, and more.
To use Sourcewell contracts, you must register for Sourcewell. Membership is free with no obligation to purchase.
“This partnership leverages the power of scale to our cooperative procurement program, providing a more effective and comprehensive purchasing experience for our members.” -Chief Jeffrey Johnson, CEO, Western Fire Chiefs Association
