Specifications include, but are not limited to: The Houston-Galveston Area Council (HGAC) is a government agency which provides a Cooperative Purchasing Program as part of its services to other
government agencies. The Program currently makes equipment and services contracts, covering products and
services for the use of its membership of more than 5000 local government “Member” participants. Any local
government may participate in the Program providing that their state has “inter-local cooperation authority” or other
joint power provisions allowing participation in cooperative activities. Currently this practice is allowed in most
states. This Invitation seeks to establish “blanket” type contracts, from which our Members may voluntarily
purchase goods and services.
