Bill Would Extend Cooperative Purchasing to GSA Schedule

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The Security Industry Association (SIA) is supporting legislation to extend cooperative purchasing to GSA Schedule 84. 

Referred to as the “Local Preparedness Acquisition Act,” the bill would allow local governments the option to purchase fire alarm systems, access control devices, perimeter security and video surveillance systems, plus other homeland security products and services at GSA-approved reduced prices. 

“This bipartisan bill delivers significant cost-savings to state and local governments while opening up new market opportunities for thousands of small businesses nationwide,” SIA Government Relations Director Don Erickson says.
