Securewatch24 and Impact Power Technologies have formed a strategic partnership for government contracting opportunities. SecureWatch24 is a dealer/integrator of electronic and physical security services and will be partnering with Impact Power Technologies on extended life batteries for land mobile and scanner devices.
Securewatch24 will implement IPT’s lithium battery technology into many of its devices currently available on a handful of procurement vehicles.
“To combat shrinking budgets and expanding responsibilities, many municipalities, agencies and school districts have included language in their purchasing guidelines that allows them to utilize existing purchasing vehicles,” said Ken Murphy, Chief Operating Officer of IPT. “These listings may allow them to purchase products in a more simplified and uniform way without the headache of RFP development and the bidding process.”
Impact Power Technologies is now listed as an authorized manufacturer under the following state and local purchasing contracts for security products and services held by SW24:
— Hazardous Incident Response Equipment Contract (HIRE): This New York State contract has already been accepted for use by Alaska, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maine, Virginia, Vermont and South Dakota.
— National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance (NCPA): This national purchasing contract is offered in all 50 states.
— NYS OGS 77201: New York State IPT customers south of Albany may continue to utilize the NYS Office of General Services (OGS) centralized contract Group #77201 for security products, installation, maintenance and monitoring.
