About SAPA

The South Alabama Regional Planning Commission hosts the South Alabama Purchasing Association (SAPA), which was formed in 2005 to offer public entities the opportunity to achieve greater cost savings and efficiencies in administering public bids for a variety of commodities and materials. SAPA consists of eleven members including SARPC who pay dues of $750 annually.

SAPA has administered bids such as fuel and lubricants, hurricane supplies, cellular telephones, office supplies, and jail inmate meals since its inception. Many more bids for products and services are planned giving SAPA members cost-savings through the joint bid process as a SAPA member. Because workloads have increased, purchasing departments can spend more time handling other duties not having to prepare bid specifications, conduct bid meetings and bid openings, and awarding bids to qualified low bidders for goods and services. This saves time and cost for SAPA members.

The current membership of SAPA is as follows:

  • City of Gulf Shores
  • City of Robertsdale
  • City of Daphne
  • City of Foley
  • City of Satsuma
  • City of Bay Minette
  • City of Fairhope
  • Baldwin County Board of Education
  • Mobile Area Water and Sewer System
  • South Alabama Regional Planning Commission
  • Baldwin County Commission
  • Mobile County Commission
  • Daphne Utilities
  • City of Saraland
  • North Baldwin Utilities
  • City of Orange Beach
