Aldermen Overwhelmingly Vote Down NJPA Authorization


Springfield aldermen have overwhelmingly rejected the Houston administration’s attempt to authorize future contracts through an out-of-state purchasing consortium.

 

The National Joint Powers Alliance is the organization that originally negotiated the city’s deal with NAPA Auto Parts to provide inventory for the consolidated city garage.

 

But the city learned after the NAPA deal was approved that it did not have authorization to work through NJPA.

 

On a 9-to-1 vote, aldermen shot down an ordinance to grant that authorization, amid concerns that working through the out-of-state agency would cut local vendors out of the chance to compete for contracts.
