The Western States Contracting Alliance (WSCA) was formed in October 1993 by the state purchasing directors from fifteen western states participating in the National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO). The primary purpose of creating WSCA/NASPO was to establish the means by which participating states may join together in cooperative multi-State contracting. This approach helps states to achieve cost-effective and efficient acquisition of quality products and services. Cooperative purchases are developed by member states.
All governmental entities within WSCA/NASPO states as well as authorized governmental entities in non-WSCA/NASPO states are welcome to use the approved agreements. Cooperative purchasing benefits states as well as cities, counties, public schools and institutions of higher education.
Network Management Corporation is an approved partner with EMC, Enterasys Networks and Hewlett Packard under the WSCA/NASPO contract to provide discounted pricing on storage solutions, network infrastructure switching, routing, security and wireless product lines, as well as server and desktop products for California state and local entities.
