Sourcewell (formerly known as The National Joint Powers Alliance) is a contracting agency serving the public sector.
How does Sourcewell work?
First, Sourcewell issues competitive bid RFPs nationally on a wide range of products and services that benefit their members. Following a rigorous competitive evaluation process, they then award the contract to the selected vendor. Sourcewell sets up the legal authority between vendor and member. The member organizations then have access to the vendor’s services at Sourcewell-negotiated rates.
