Arvada, CO: CounterTrade Products, Inc., a Value-Add IT Equipment Reseller in Arvada, CO, announced it has been authorized to participate in HP’s Western States Contracting Alliance (WSCA)/ National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) Indirect Fulfillment Program. WSCA/NASPO is a national cooperative purchasing alliance that benefits state, local, and education efforts through utilizing a cooperative purchasing vehicle with a variety of manufacturers and contractors.

To enhance the capabilities of the WSCA/NASPO program, HP created an Indirect Fulfillment Program which authorizes contractors and subcontractors to provide HP products, warranty, and maintenance services directly. The HP WSCA/NASPO Indirect Fulfillment partner program provides select authorized resellers with access to HP WSCA/NASPO products, special pricing, and resources in order to successfully engage with the eligible WSCA/NASPO state agencies on behalf of HP.

CounterTrade has recently completed the application process and is now authorized to sell three HP Business Units (BU) directly to state entities participating in the WSCA/NASPO alliance: Enterprise Storage, Servers, and Networking Equipment (ESSN); Imaging and Printing Equipment (IPG); and Personal Systems Group Equipment (PSG).

CounterTrade and HP have worked as partners for over 27 years and throughout the long-standing relationship, have been able to offer high quality products and support. CounterTrade currently holds an HP Letter of Supply on their General Service Administration (GSA) Contract (GS-35F-0650K). Additionally, CounterTrade’s Vice President of Sales, Joe Boglino, holds a position on HP’s Advisory Board. When asked about the recent HP Indirect Fulfillment authorization, Joe Boglino commented; “CounterTrade is excited to continue our strong partnership with HP. This authorization will allow CounterTrade to provide discounted, high quality IT commodities to our state, local, and education customers. Having the ability to serve our community is a privilege.”
