Resources for Governmental Units, including Illinois municipalities and qualified non-profit agencies
The Governmental Joint Purchasing Act (30 ILCS 525/) (GJPA) provides which entities may use State of Illinois joint purchase master contracts. Registration by governmental units or qualified not-for-profit agencies to participate in UPP and use joint purchase master contracts is not required; the entity only needs to meet the GJPA's definition of a "governmental unit" or a "qualified not-for-profit agency." A qualified not-for-profit agency, commonly referred to as a State Use vendor and defined in 30 ILCS 500/43-30, is a not-for-profit agency serving persons with significant disabilities.
