‘Wisconsin Partnership’ Website Provides Local Government Discounts

Homeland Security and Technology Division Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle has unveiled the "Wisconsin Partnership" website, an online resource center for local government to save money through procurement, technical assistance, as well as financial and grant information. The Governor has directed his cabinet agencies to combine access to a wide array of services offered by the state on a single website.

Through this partnership, local governments can increase their purchasing power by receiving the same discounts the state receives. For example, the website enables local governments to purchase automatic defibrillators–which normally cost $3,937–for $1,950, a savings of more than 50 percent. The site also offers savings ranging from 22 percent on police patrol cars to 62 percent on photocopiers.

Additionally, local governments can use the website to access information on applying for state grant programs, from Coastal Management Grants to Weatherization assistance. The site also provides information on how to access technical assistance from the state on topics ranging from human resources to information technology to waste and water management.
