“Cooperative purchasing is the way of the future for many state and local government agencies and nonprofit organizations, and we’re looking forward to offering our robust line of construction equipment to NPPGov members,” said Mark Deakyne, state contract manager, John Deere Construction & Forestry. “The contract simplifies equipment purchasing while complying with procurement requirements, providing organizations peace of mind when purchasing their next piece of construction equipment.”

To utilize the contract, organizations must be NPPGov members. Registering is a quick, easy process and entirely free. There is no obligation to purchase. NPPGov members interested in procuring construction equipment from John Deere can reference contract number PS16001.
