Navistar Inc. announced its commercial truck and bus brands, International Truck and IC Bus, as well as its parts business, were each awarded cooperative contracts through Sourcewell, which is a government agency focused on helping other government agencies, educational institutions and nonprofits work more efficiently.

“Through this program, nonprofit organizations that are Sourcewell members are able to purchase our industry-leading vehicles without having to spend time and money on the bid process,” said Mark Stasell, vice president of vocational trucks at Navistar.

The contracts, which are established for the next four years, designate International Truck, IC Bus and Navistar’s parts business as a verified seller to over 65,000 nonprofit organizations — including state and local governments, public and private education, research agencies, charity industries and food banks — across the United States and Canada that are participating agencies of Sourcewell.

Sourcewell cooperative contracts will save participating organizations time and money by eliminating much of the work associated with the bidding process for International and IC Bus vehicles, including spec’ing equipment and advertising and evaluating bids. This work is instead done by Sourcewell and allows participating organizations to jump straight to a purchase order offer. — Transport Topics
