The Western States Contracting Alliance (WSCA) contracted North American Video (NAV), Brick, N.J., to provide security products and technologies, along with installation, integration and repair services.

The contract falls under the newly established purchase category of security and protection services and will provide WSCA members in National Association of State Purchasing Officials (NASPO) states with greater access to the latest security technologies and more streamlined systems integration services.

“This award will enable even more rapid service implementation and delivery for NAV customers in WSCA/NASPO participating states,” said Jason Oakley, president and CEO of NAV. “With no contract negotiations needed, customers will receive optimal pricing along with turnkey installations and service.”

The WSCA/NASPO cooperative program requires a lead state, in this case Nevada, to issue and maintain the actual contract terms and conditions of a vendor contract. That state then offers the individual vendor’s contract to other participating states, and other states can elect to issue a participating agreement to that vendor.

All authorized governmental entities in any state are welcome to use WSCA/NASPO cooperative contracts with the approval of that state’s chief procurement official. Cooperative purchasing benefits states as well as cities, counties, public schools, institutions of higher education and other eligible entities.
