CSAC Finance Corporation Announces New U.S. Communities Contracts

April 27, 2017

In being responsive to the needs of public agencies, the U.S. Communities purchasing program has grown now to offer more than 40 contracts available for use by not just our California counties, but all public agencies nationally. On average, California counties utilize only two contracts per county; leaving significant savings that counties can realize by utilizing more of the supplier contracts. This no-cost program is available to all counties, cities, special districts, and non-profits; and offers the lowest local government pricing on all contract items. As the offerings on U.S. Communities are constantly evolving, we are pleased to announce our newest contract for paint and paint supplies!

We are excited to announce the award of a new U.S. Communities cooperative contract for Paint and Paint Supplies. This contract was awarded to The Home Depot through a competitive solicitation process conducted by the lead public agency, Maricopa County, Arizona. The contract term is for three years with the option to renew for seven additional one-year periods. This new contract provides services and savings including:

  • Up to 20% off paints, stains and primers;
  • All paint purchases eligible for rebate of up to 5%;
  • Free direct-to-jobsite delivery; and
  • Dedicated field support.

Join us for one of our free informational webinars. If you are unable to join one of the webinars, you can have a Home Depot representative contact you. The webinars will be held on May 3rd at 8:00am PST and May 4th at 10:00am PST.

Additionally, a new contract for maintenance, repair, and operating supplies was recently launched. The new U.S. Communities cooperative contract for maintenance, repair, operating supplies, industrial supplies and related products and services was awarded to The Home Depot, HD Supply Facilities Maintenance, Applied Industrial Technologies, and SupplyWorks, A Home Depot Company, through a competitive solicitation process.
