ST. GEORGE, Utah — Region 4 Education Service Center recently awarded a national contract to passenger transportation management company ALC.
Region 4 Education Service Center is the Cooperative Purchasing Network (TCPN)’s lead government agency.
TCPN is a national governmental purchasing cooperative that has contracts with vendors for commonly purchased products and services, allowing entities to make compliant purchases at a valued rate.
Through the national transportation contract with TCPN, ALC can provide school districts throughout the U.S. with alternative student transportation services.
