Keeping the agencies running in your city, county or state requires having the right power and lighting products when you need them, without lengthy delays. At Batteries Plus, our organization is uniquely equipped to tackle the many challenges local government agencies face. For starters, we offer access to over 40,000 unique battery and lighting products. Even better, our pre-negotiated contract with NPP Gov enables you to save time by purchasing products that have already gone through a formal RFP process that local government agencies can utilize. Plus, we have over 700 locations throughout the United States, full of products ready for pickup or local delivery.

Batteries Plus Provides Access to RFP Contracted Items

Batteries Plus understands government purchasing. Our experts are not only fully versed in the RFP process for local bidding requirements, but we can help you save time and money through our competitively bid and awarded contract via NPP Gov. This group purchasing organization serves public markets as a cooperative purchasing organization, providing access to contracts created through an RFP process conducted by a lead agency. This enables you to purchase your most commonly needed items much faster, without having to go through a lengthy bidding process.
