Ashburn, VA — December 13, 2022. ASBO International is pleased to announce its partnership with GOVMVMT, a not-for-profit cooperative purchasing program that helps U.S. school districts save time and money while supporting public education and the greater community.
As ASBO’s purchasing cooperative, GOVMVMT will provide ASBO members with a powerful, streamlined procurement tool designed specifically to meet their school systems’ needs while ensuring they comply with local, state, and federal procurement requirements.
GOVMVMT is a program of the nonprofit Innovative Government Services Association (IGSA). GOVMVMT is designed to provide competitively bid contracts to public and non-profit agencies and to deliver value-added programs and services while reinvesting fees generated from their programs back into the community.

Nancy Parrish, IGSA board chair, says of the partnership: “We are thrilled to partner with ASBO International to support K-12 school districts in accessing publicly bid contracts that offer best in class products and services at the lowest prices from top-tier suppliers.”
