AACS has an association-level membership with National Purchasing Partners (NPPGov) which allows AACS member schools access to discounts available through NPPGov, a member based Group Purchasing Organization (GPO) that offers schools cost-saving solutions through national supplier agreements.
NPPGov has set up AACS as the “parent account” for membership purposes. NPPGov will assist each AACS member school to identify and connect with suppliers and services that will provide the best pricing options for your school. NPPGov members maintain the ability to make individual choices from the NPPGov portfolio of offerings, so there are no required agreements for any school and no obligations for any school. More information is also available here. Our contact for this program is Joan Hauser with NPPGov.
