If my agency already has an account with Applied, do I need to set up a new account?
No. Contact your Applied Account Manager or call 1-877-279-2799 to have the U.S. Communities program linked to your existing account.

Does the competitive pricing apply, regardless of quantity?
Yes. As a U.S. Communities participant and Applied customer, your agency will receive competitively solicited pricing on any size order (contract #:16154). There are no costs, minimum quantity requirements or spend limits associated with using the Applied U.S. Communities program.

How does it save time and money?
The key value for the agency is resource savings. On average, U.S. Communities participating agencies will receive significant savings over traditional procurement practices. Most agencies today are spread too thin. Agencies are downsizing administrative departments, and retiring or departing purchasing and maintenance positions are left unfilled. The U.S. Communities program provides a mechanism to save the time and costs associated with obtaining quotes or preparing bids. The time savings allow the department to accomplish its work tasks more efficiently with the personnel on hand.
