National IPA partners with lead public agencies – including governments, educational institutions and non-profit agencies who competitively solicit national contracts for aggregated use. Participating agencies can utilize cooperative purchasing agreements with National IPA suppliers, streamlining the contracting process by eliminating the need to solicit the contract. There is no cost for agencies to participate and utilize the contracts available through National IPA.
Allan McCombs, Senior Vice President of Account Management, National IPA, said, “National IPA is thrilled to continue our long-standing relationship with Toter. Their previous contract provided cities and counties with an easy and value-based vehicle to purchase durable waste containers. We are excited Toter’s new contract will continue to offer our participants access to leading edge sustainable solutions.”
