For the third year in a row, the League sponsored U.S. Communities
program offered a $3,000 voucher as the grand prize to be used with any of the program’s 40 suppliers to purchase a wide range of products or services.
The U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance, an important strategic partner of the League of California Cities®
, is a government purchasing cooperative that reduces the cost of goods and services by aggregating the purchasing power of public agencies nationwide. U.S. Communities provides world class procurement resources and solutions to local and state government agencies, school districts (K-12), higher education, and nonprofits.
Through U.S. Communities, state and local governments have access to a broad line of competitively solicited contracts with best in class national suppliers. Participating in this cooperative is easy, efficient and especially helpful for the small and medium sized cities because it allows them to get the same cost-saving discounts that are often available to larger cities.
The League is a founding sponsor of U.S. Communities and purchases made through the program help keep the League’s membership dues low.
