OMNIA Partners announces that it has finalized the purchase of Communities Program Management, LLC (CPM), the organization that staffs and manages the operations of the U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance (U.S. Communities). CPM has managed the U.S. Communities program since its inception and will continue to do so going forward.
The U.S. Communities program provides world-class procurement resources and solutions to local and state government agencies, school districts (K-12), higher education, and nonprofits. Participants have access to a broad range of competitively-solicited contracts with best-in-class national suppliers.
OMNIA Partners is a national group purchasing organization that includes four subsidiaries: National IPA, Prime Advantage, Corporate United, and now, U.S. Communities.
“With the completion of the purchase, we will begin to explore the synergies of all OMNIA Partners companies and identify ways to provide value to their respective stakeholders,” says M. Todd Abner, President and CEO of OMNIA Partners. “Since 1996, U.S. Communities has been a trusted resource for public procurement professionals. We are enthusiastic about what we’ll be able to accomplish now that they are part of the OMNIA Partners organization.” “U.S. Communities has long held the goal of driving benefit to public agencies,” says Kevin Juhring, President of CPM/U.S. Communities. “Now we’ll be able to work towards this goal with OMNIA’s support. I’m encouraged that together, we’ll be able to drive improvements that will benefit public agencies and the supplier companies who serve them.”
