Sourcewell awards heavy equipment contract to Volvo Construction Equipment
Volvo CE is pleased to announce a second consecutive Sourcewell contract in their heavy construction equipment category. As one of the top-scoring respondents, Volvo earned the new four-year contract during a recent competitive solicitation process. Sourcewell awarded Volvo this contract after reviewing RFP responses from 14 manufacturers.
Sourcewell, formerly NJPA, is a leading government agency specializing in cooperative purchasing. Their procurement experts have awarded more than 325 competitively solicited contracts to world-class companies on behalf of their 50,000 public-agency members.
"Moving away from the traditional bid process is a win-win for equipment manufacturers, our dealer networks, and most importantly the tax-paying citizens of our country. Government entities may now make purchasing decisions based on best value. This enables us as a manufacturer/dealer to promote our equipment based on its true merit: quality, technological advancements, safety, residual value and total cost of ownership over its entire lifetime. This gives us the ability to work with our customers based on their specific needs," said Kathy Tedone, government buying contract specialist for Volvo CE.
Through Volvo's Sourcewell contract, government agencies may purchase or lease from its full equipment line-up at its most competitive pricing available. This includes everything from excavators, wheel loaders and articulated haulers to pavers and compactors, as well as specialized equipment such as landfill compactors.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
