1GPA (https://www.1gpa.org) is a national, nonprofit purchasing cooperative that allows entities to take advantage of existing contracts to purchase the services, supplies, and/or equipment that you need without having to go
through the entire solicitation process yourselves.
If you are already a 1GPA member, you may be able to use BusWhere for your district without a time-consuming RFP process.
