DOMA holds a cooperative clause through our work with Newport News Public schools (NNPS), meaning public entities in Virginia can obtain DOMA’s scanning, digital conversion, and software services in the same way they would any independent DPS or VITA state contract. This translates to considerable savings of both time and money for your school or state agency.
Purchasing our services is extremely easy since DOMA holds a State Cooperative Contract Clause through our work with Newport News Public Schools. To read more about what we have done for NNPS download the case study above or click below to read more about Cooperative Contracts.
Our digital services can free up valuable physical space in your building and help you get compliant with document/data standards in your state. If you are an agency that needs to transfer permanent records to NARA we can easily add appropriate metadata and help you get aligned with the government’s M-19-21 memorandum as well.
We deliver many of our solutions through our innovative DOMA Experience (DX) software platform. Our software in non-licensed based and can be easily scaled across your institution to promote collaboration with your information through the AWS Cloud.
Cooperative contracts — also known as cooperative procurements or cooperative agreements — are agreements between the government and businesses, created in order to lower the costs of procuring goods or services that multiple entities commonly need. Cooperative contracts were designed to circumvent the complex bidding process often required before services can be purchased.
Cooperative Contracts exist for many products such as gasoline/fuel, cleaning supplies, and paper, but with the growing need for technology services, you will find many consulting, IT, BPO, and software services available as well.
Through the Virginia Public Procurement Act (VPPA) Virginia, public entities can purchase services or goods through approved VITA (Virginia Information Technologies Agency) and DPS (Division of Purchases) contract vehicles. Additionally, they can procure services through an existing contract held by other state entities.
Leveraging cooperative contracts increases efficiency, reduces administrative expenses, and simplifies the process of deploying IT services.
Cooperative contracts ultimately result in lower prices. One contract and one procurement process serve multiple entities. Because the preliminary work has been completed for more than one agency, administrative costs are lower. Your organization doesn’t need to go through a lengthy process of seeking bids, proposals, and quotes. You can work directly with a trusted company like DOMA to get fast results.
According to the Virginia Public Procurement Act (VPPA):
“A public body may purchase from another public body’s contract even if it did not participate in the request for proposal or invitation to bid if the request for proposal or invitation to bid specified that the procurement was being conducted on behalf of other public bodies”
This means that any public body in the State of Virginia can leverage DOMA’s Cooperative Contract Clause. This includes:
