Participating Addendum (PA) process 


State agency 

  1. State agency identifies a need for PASS services provided by BerryDunn and contacts their Chief Procurement Official (CPO).
  2. State CPO (or designated representative) will be the signatory on the PA. They will also be the NASPO ValuePoint (ValuePoint) point of contact throughout the process. 
  3. State CPO completes the draft PA and then forwards the draft to BerryDunn. Negotiations will be handled directly between state CPO and BerryDunn. Upon agreement, the state CPO sends a final copy of PA to BerryDunn for signature. 
  4. State CPO sends fully executed copy to both BerryDunn and ValuePoint at PA@naspovaluepoint.org, and notifies the state agency that they can begin work with BerryDunn. 

Note: Political subdivisions and non-state entities (local entity) can now participate as well. 
 
Local entity

  1. Local entity identifies a need for PASS services provided by BerryDunn, but the State CPO has not signed a PA. 
  2. Local entity contacts ValuePoint Education and Outreach (E&O) team at PA@naspovaluepoint.org with information about the entity’s main point of contact: full name, phone number, email address, and physical address. 
  3. E&O team will contact the State CPO to ask if they will sign a PA or if the local entity may sign their own PA. If CPO agrees to sign a PA, follow the State Agency process (step 3 above). 
  4. Alternatively, if the CPO agrees to the local entity signing their own PA, the E&O team will email both BerryDunn and the local entity with permission from the CPO to complete the PA. 
  5. Local entity completes the draft PA and then forwards the draft to BerryDunn. Negotiations will be handled directly between local entity and BerryDunn. Upon agreement, the local entity sends a final copy of PA to BerryDunn for signature. 
  6. Local entity sends fully executed copy to both BerryDunn and ValuePoint at PA@naspovaluepoint.org
