RPN Develops Purchasing Guidance for NASPO

August 15, 2012

Source: RPN

RPN is developing purchasing guidance for NASPO in several product categories, including overall environmentally preferable purchasing, lamps/ballasts, paint, janitorial products, compostable service ware, pest control, copy machines/multi-function devices, office supplies, snow and ice removers, and office/dorm furniture. 

Aimed at helping states procure environmentally preferable products and services, each guidance document will address green point weighting, minimum requirements, green certifications and standards, product selection, lifecycle costs, and more. The State of Washington is providing oversight for this project. The guidance will be available to all states on NASPO's website in early 2013.
