GOVMVMT was founded around one basic principle: creating a true, not-for-profit, public-focused program that is centered around providing dependable programs and services with the public’s interest at the forefront of everything we do.
GOVMVMT is reinventing cooperative purchasing that assures legitimate public agency bidding, conforms to the highest public procurement standards, and is validated by certified public procurement professionals.
What Makes us Different
We help combine the purchasing power of public agencies from across the country into contracts that are competitively solicited, evaluated, and awarded by a lead public agency. GOVMVMT’s solicitations are based on public agency feedback that is gathered to identify opportunities to address traditionally challenging contracts or to provide efficiency through volumes of scale.
GOVMVMT is overseen by an Advisory Council of top public procurement professionals from around the country. We are committed to creating a credible, collaborative environment where public agencies and top-tier suppliers can work together to provide quality offerings for a true public benefit.
Each one of GOVMVMT’s community of first-class suppliers has consciously joined our mission to create the most credible, ethical, and public agency-focused nonprofit cooperative purchasing program in the country.
Every GOVMVMT contract was solicited, evaluated, and awarded by a city, county, state, school district, or higher education institution. Likewise, every GOVMVMT contract is held by an actual public agency – not a third-party organization.
GOVMVMT’s government contract solicitation process is founded on the Lead Public Agency Model. Considered the gold star of public procurement by industry professionals, this procurement process relies on transparency.
