Strategic Alliance for Volume Expenditures S.A.V.E.
The Strategic Alliance for Volume Expenditures (S.A.V.E.) is a consortium of Arizona agencies, educational institutions, fire districts, airport authorities, political entities, and technology districts. The standard vendor contract form utilized by its membership includes the S.A.V.E. cooperative agreement clause that allows members to cross-utilize contracts for procurement of services. Members can utilize existing contracts that include approved rates/fees for the type of services they are seeking. This allows the procuring agency to forego a formal procurement process, which can be time consuming and costly.
To date, there are more than 300 S.A.V.E. members.
