Lead Public Agency (LPA) Contracts

E&I contracts which are identified by the LPA designation were competitively solicited by a Lead Public Agency in accordance with government purchasing regulations. These contracts include “piggybacking” language which enables E&I to offer the contracts to our membership.

These LPA contracts were developed through a Request for Proposal issued by a lead public agency, which maintains ownership of the contract. That agency is an independent government entity which has completed all advertising and bid procedures required by state public contracts law.lpa process2
