The Western States Contracting Alliance (WSCA)
Contract # 7-09-36-04 – Contract Expiration Date: June 30, 2014
The Western States Contracting Alliance (WSCA) was formed in October 1993 by the state purchasing directors from fifteen NASPO western states. The primary purpose of creating WSCA was to establish the means by which participating states may join together in cooperative multi-State contracting. This approach helps states to achieve cost-effective and efficient acquisition of quality products and services. Cooperative purchases are developed by member states. There is no Vendor List. Membership consists of the central procurement official that heads the state central procurement organization, (or a designee for that state), from Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.
All governmental entities within WSCA states as well as authorized governmental entities in non-WSCA states are welcome to use the approved agreements. Cooperative purchasing benefits states as well as cities, counties, public schools and institutions of higher education.
Smile has teamed up with WSCA and Sharp Electronics to assure you are getting the best price on Sharp multifunction products. WSCA offers cost-effective quality products and services for school districts, cities, counties, and other government agencies.
