Security Systems in Schools:  PSX  awarded new cooperative contract, available through National IPA

March 1, 2018  (Nashville, TN) –  Following on its recent expansions into Houston and Denver, security & parking systems integrator PSX continues its recent growth with a new cooperative contract available through the National Intergovernmental Purchasing Alliance (National IPA™), a cooperative purchasing organization that serves schools, government agencies and non-profit organizations.

More schools, universities and government agencies can buy better, truly comprehensive security measures – and buy them faster – with PSX designs and products now available through National IPA.  Unlike most firms, PSX provides critical security support – including installation, service, and maintenance – from the edge of the property all the way down to individual doorways.  Fence line detection, video surveillance, door lockdown equipment, intercoms, vehicle gates, perimeter detection, card access, and even AI / machine-learning driven computer systems that can drastically reduce the risk of attack and intrusion at any facility.

PSX is the preferred provider for many well-known corporations, energy providers, and government agencies.  All contracts in the National IPA portfolio are competitively solicited, evaluated and awarded by some of the most respected agencies in public procurement and adhere to the highest standards. National IPA ensures that industry best practices, processes, and procedures are applied.

The new partnership begins March 1, 2018.  Once it goes into effect, this new offering will serve public agencies and educational institutions until February 28, 2021.

PSX President Paul Hutchison pointed out that “National IPA has the trust of agencies across the country.  We’re glad that they see what’s possible with our two organizations working together.  Schools and universities in particular need more help than they’ve been getting, especially at the perimeter.”
