Caterpillar, City of Tucson Sign Important Contract (USA)
Caterpillar has been awarded a contract by the City of Tucson that will be marketed nationally by the National Intergovernmental Purchasing Alliance (National IPA) to supply construction equipment and related services to current and future National IPA participants.
The award is the result of a national competitive bid for supplying “Heavy, Equipment, Parts, Accessories, Supplies and Related Services.”
The contract allows National IPA participants – governmental organizations, such as municipalities, and educational institutions – to purchase Cat® products and services at nationally leveraged contract pricing without the duplication of the competitive bid process.
National IPA participants will have access to state-of-the-art equipment and unparalleled service through their local Cat dealers.
“Having this contract supported through the Cat dealer network was key in Caterpillar’s ability to exhibit our commitment to providing unparalleled customer service during the solicitation evaluation process,” says Jason Walker, Governmental Sales Support Consultant from the Global Construction and Infrastructure Division.
