Communities of All Sizes can Save with Apollo Sunguard
There are plenty of reasons to upgrade your community with shade. There are also big benefits to working with the team at Apollo Sunguard to make it happen.
Our list of clients includes Hillsborough County, Manatee County Schools, Palm Beach County Schools, Broward County Schools, Clay County and Miami-Dade County. Not only does this show we have the staff and supplies to take on major projects, but it can also mean big savings for new local government clients.
Purchasing Made Easier Through Piggy-Backing
We can use existing local government contracts as templates for new ones, which can cut down on administrative expenses. Known as piggybacking, the practice allows a public entity to utilize a competitive bid or RFP solicited by any other governmental agency if it’s deemed to be in the best interest of the public. We’re happy to work with local government clients to ensure they get the benefits of piggybacking whenever possible. Some of our past local government contracts include:
Purchasing Made Easier with Our GSA Contracts
Apollo Sunguard has obtained two GSA Contracts to assist government agencies with the purchase of shade structures and accessories. This means purchasing officers can skip the lengthy bidding processes and know they are getting pre-negotiated government pricing.
One of our GSA contracts (GS‐07F‐0320N) is for shade structures. The other GSA contract (GS-30F-0029Y) is for both shade structures and EV Charging Stations, in which we also have a blank purchase agreement with the GSA Fleet for Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE).
Purchasing Made Easier through Cooperative Purchase Agreements
Apollo Sunguard is a BuyBoard-awarded vendor. BuyBoard Purchasing Cooperative is a free program designed to simplify the purchasing process for schools, municipalities, county governments and more.
By leveraging the purchasing power of the group, members can achieve better pricing on products and services. BuyBoard members don’t have to go through an individual procurement process, saving them administrative time and resources. Plus, members can rest assured that BuyBoard-awarded products have been competitively procured.
According to BuyBoard’s website, it “evaluates vendor proposals on the basis of best value to cooperative members.”
