Volvo Construction Equipment says it has won a second-consecutive contract with Sourcewell, securing the right to offer machines to government, school, municipality and non-profit customers at competitive pricing.
Known as the National Joint Powers Alliance until 2018, Sourcewell partners with and contracts vetted companies that its clients can then purchase products and services from. The idea is to save members the time and hassle of an RFP process while also ensuring they get a good deal.
Through the four-year contract, Sourcewell’s more than 50,000 members will be able to purchase or lease from Volvo’s full equipment lineup at what the company says is its “most competitive pricing available.”
“Moving away from the traditional bid process is a win-win for equipment manufacturers, our dealer networks, and most importantly the tax–paying citizens of our country,” says Kathy Tedone, government buying contract specialist for Volvo CE. “Government entities may now make purchasing decisions based on best value. This enables us as a manufacturer/dealer to promote our equipment based on its true merit: quality, technological advancements, safety, residual value and total cost of ownership over its entire lifetime. This gives us the ability to work with our customers based on their specific needs.”
