NASPO ValuePoint was formed in October 1993 by the state purchasing directors from fifteen NASPO western states. The primary purpose of creating NASPO ValuePoint was to establish the means by which participating states could join together in cooperative multi-state contracting.
This approach has helped states achieve cost-effective and efficient acquisition of quality products and services.
Cooperative purchases are developed by member states. A 'lead-state' model is used in undertaking cooperative multi-state contracts. Utah is the lead state for NASPO ValuePoint Public Cloud Hosting Services.
All governmental entities within NASPO ValuePoint states as well as authorized governmental entities in non-NASPO ValuePoint states are welcome to use the approved agreements. Cooperative purchasing benefits states as well as cities, counties, public schools and institutions of higher education.
