VACo Risk Management Programs
VACo Risk Management Programs is the number one provider to counties and county related agencies for all types of insurance coverages. VACoRP and VACoGSIA are member-owned programs governed by seven member supervisory boards elected from the general membership. The primary objective is to provide rates in a manner that is equitable for all members. Participation is limited to counties, county school systems and county related agencies. The Virginia Association of Counties Self-Insurance Risk Pool (VACoRP) was created to provide property and liability insurance and risk management services. The Virginia Association of Counties Group Self-Insurance Association (VACoGSIA) was created to provide workers compensation and risk management services. www.vacoins.org Contact: Chris Carey, email@example.com.
U.S. Communities: Government Purchasing Alliance
The Virginia Association of Counties along with the Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO), the National Association of Counties (NACO), the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP), the National League of Cities (NLC), and the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM) sponsors the U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance.
The U.S. Communities program provides all local agencies in the U.S. with publicly competitively bid contracts for various products and services. Most local agencies may piggyback on a contract competitively solicited by another public agency, thereby eliminating the need to re-solicit. Through the buying power of large purchasers in the U.S. Communities program all local government agencies receive access to excellent pricing and contract terms.
