National alliance picks Caterpillar for heavy equipment supply

A national purchasing alliance of government agencies led by the city of Tucson has awarded Caterpillar a five-year contract to supply heavy equipment, parts and related services.

The city of Tucson is serving as the lead agency of the National Intergovernmental Purchasing Alliance (IPA) for this procurement lead. The cooperative purchasing contract extends Cat equipment and services to member agencies of the National IPA.

This national cooperative contract award was presented and evaluated based upon bid responsiveness, product quality, customer service and the ability to carry out a nationwide contract-selling program.

Through the agreement, all Cat machines, including graders and backhoes, technology, and related services will now be made available not only to the city of Tucson but any government agency or educational institution throughout the country associated with the National IPA.

“We are incredibly proud and honored to be selected as having the equipment solution offering the best overall lifecycle value for the City of Tucson,” says Ann Schreifels, governmental sales manager for Caterpillar. “Through the National IPA, other governmental buyers throughout the United States will have a means to procure state-of-the-art Cat equipment and technology knowing the bid process has been satisfied and confident it offers them the best value for their purchases. They will also receive unparalleled service and industry-leading customer support from the extensive Cat dealer network.”
