Find out which seven vendors were awarded nationwide contracts to streamline security solutions procurement for public entities

by Brianna Crandall — August 14, 2017 — Government, education, and nonprofit entities looking to enhance the safety and surveillance of their facilities now have access to a wider variety of security solutions through the National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA) public contracting agency.

NJPA recently awarded contracts in the “Facility Security Equipment, Systems, and Services with Related Equipment and Supplies” category through solicitation #031517. NJPA contracts are solicited across North America and competitively awarded on behalf of NJPA current and potential government and education member agencies.

Following a national competitive solicitation process, NJPA awarded contracts to seven security solutions vendors based on best value.

Through these contracts, entities can find virtually everything they need when it comes to facility security management: surveillance, access control, fire detection/warning and suppression, security gate control, and more, says NJPA.

NJPA Lead Contract Administrator Tony Glenz stated:

Each facility has its unique requirements for protecting its assets — including personnel. I’m very pleased with the outcome of this solicitation. The awarded vendors will provide NJPA members a full gamut of solutions when it comes to securing their facilities.

The contracts, already effective, will streamline the purchasing and service acquisition process, saving time and money for NJPA members throughout the United States and Canada.

The vendors selected by NJPA are:
  • APi National Service Group
  • Convergint Technologies LLC
  • Johnson Controls Inc.
  • Siemens Industry Inc.
  • SimplexGrinnell
  • STANLEY Security
  • Tyco Integrated Security LLC

More details about the security solutions companies and their services are available on the NJPA Web site.
