Our Mission

At 1GPA, we believe that we have to constantly grow and evolve to be better. Every contract is a reflection of this and our dedication to procurement. 1GPA is committed to procuring better contracts, at a better value, to better serve our Members and Vendors more effectively. 1GPA will always remain committed to building, maintaining excellence and preserving the value we bring to our Members and Vendors. We stand ready to serve you.


1GPA is a national non-profit governmental purchasing cooperative which allows public entities to take advantage of existing contracts to purchase the goods and services they need from local and national vendors. 1GPA Contracts are approved and awarded by 1GPA’s lead governmental entities and are available for use and benefit of all entities complying with their own state procurement laws and regulations. 1GPA’s pooled purchasing power means public and private schools, cities, counties and state entities, as well as colleges, universities and Native American communities can save actual budget dollars on our contracts utilizing best business practices. All of our contracts are competitively bid and awarded in compliance with state statutes, procurement laws and regulations.
