Municipal agencies and other authorized users now have a new way to save time on the procurement process while also saving money on a full range of Toro® and BOSS® products.
The City of Mesa, Arizona, has issued a single award for Parks and Golf Grounds Maintenance Equipment to The Toro Company, and it is in effect until March 31, 2022. This cooperative purchasing agreement (Contract #2017025) is available to public and non-profit agencies nationwide through the National Intergovernmental Purchasing Alliance (National IPA) cooperative. The National IPA works with more than 48,000 entities across the United States and strives to provide economical buying opportunities for their members.
Effective April 1, 2017, the City of Mesa’s national cooperative contract makes it possible for agencies registered with National IPA to purchase Toro Commercial and BOSS products. As the lead agency, the City of Mesa has already completed the vetting process for this publicly solicited/awarded agreement.
The contract offers tremendous savings on a complete breadth of Toro and BOSS equipment, including:
- Commercial golf and grounds equipment
- Irrigation solutions (golf and residential/commercial)
- Construction (Sitework Systems) equipment
- Landscape contractor equipment
- BOSS snow and ice management equipment
- Allied equipment that attaches to Toro products
- Used and demo equipment
The program also offers a Smart Value Program that provides “free goods” for certain levels of purchases, as well as provisions for financing, leasing and service contracts.
