Strategic Alliance for Volume Expenditures
The Strategic Alliance for Volume Expenditures (S.A.V.E.) is a consortium of local governmental agencies across the State of Arizona, who have agreements allowing other member agencies to utilize each other’s contracts.
It is important to note that S.A.V.E. does not issue solicitations nor is it an organization that vendors can join. Each S.A.V.E. agency member includes cooperative language in their contracts that will allow other member agencies to purchase contracted goods and services under the same pricing, terms and conditions as the contracting agency.
The contract listing on the group site is not a complete list of contracts available to agency members. Participating governmental agencies who are interested in utilizing a contract listed should contact the issuing entity for due diligence documents. Each governmental agency member maintains a listing of current contracts on their own site as well.
Vendors who have been awarded contracts with one or more of eligible S.A.V.E. organizations have the responsibility of marketing their awarded contract to participating governmental agencies. Please note, in order for the contract to be utilized by participating S.A.V.E. agencies, the original solicitation must contain the cooperative language. Vendors should be aware that each potential participating governmental agency member reserves the right to perform a separate “due diligence” review to ensure the resultant award complies with that entities procurement rules and regulations.
This valuable tool helps support S.A.V.E. members with great advice from subject matter experts and provides access to incredible resources, tools, documents and best practices.
Members will have easy access to peers to ask questions, receive and share needed documents, conduct research for projects and much more. Members will increase their knowledge, save time and have one-stop access to documents and member feedback. Members know they are receiving guidance from other peers which will help instill confidence and assist them in performing their job responsibilities
