Purchasing Solutions Alliance (PSA), a nationwide non-profit cooperative purchasing program of the Brazos Valley Council of Governments (BVCOG), is soliciting proposals from licensed, experienced, and qualified vendors to provide rental comparability data and software to PSA members and/or prospective members for the analysis of existing rental data in order to ensure compliance with Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Rent Reasonableness regulations found in 24 CFR 982. See "Technical Specifications and Scope of Work " for a detailed list of products and services solicited in the scope of this RFP.
There is considerable potential sales value in being awarded a competitively bid public sector cooperative contract. PSA contractors have the advantage of promoting sales to governmental/educational entities without the need for the buyer to issue an RFP. The saves the buyer time and money from duplicating the competitive bidding process and managing the resulting contract. Many of our existing PSA contractors have been able to gain new customers because of the cooperative contracts.
We believe a PSA contract would enhance your competitive position in the government marketplace and are eager to work with you to promote the best interests of our participating local governments and qualifying non-profit organizations.
PSA is a “Government-to-Government” procurement service for Local Governments, Districts, Political Subdivisions, Authorities, Schools, Universities, and qualifying Not-for-Profit Corporations. These agencies become Members of Purchasing Solutions Alliance by executing an Interlocal Purchasing Agreement, which is free of cost and imposes no minimum spending requirements. PSA, acting on behalf of Members, solicits competitive offerings for the furnishing of products and/or services, as described elsewhere, which MAY be purchased by any of our member local governments, districts, and other public agencies across the nation during the contract term. Members using the Program issue purchase orders directly to PSA contractors.
