Personal Protective Equipment Resources

Regional Purchasing Cooperative

MARC and the Kansas City Regional Purchasing Cooperative worked with input from local jurisdictions, health care facilities, fire and law enforcement agencies to establish a regional purchasing cooperative contract for PPE.

Contracts were awarded for N95 respirators, procedural masks, face shields, gloves, gowns, caps and shoe covers. Purchasing under the contract is available to any municipality, county, state, governmental public utility, non-profit hospital, educational institute, special government agency, and non-profit organization performing governmental functions. Other organizations not tax exempt may still be eligible to purchase all items. View and download contracts. Or view master award listing in Excel spreadsheet.

If you have any feedback or questions about these contracts, please contact Rita Parker, Program Coordinator, at rita.parker@kcrpc.com.

Possible PPE Vendors List

MARC has worked to address the PPE needs of first responders and health care professionals in the region throughout the COVID-19 crisis and created a list of potential PPE vendors.

New additions are at the top of the list. Links are also provided to the COVID-19 Suppliers List maintained by BioKansas, the Missouri PPE Marketplace (accessible via the Missouri PPE Webpage), the Kansas City PPE website, and the Missouri Vocational Enterprises site (only available to non-profits and government entities).

Please email Vickie Phillips (vphillips@marc.org) with possible PPE vendor/supplier information and any vendors you have procured PPE from and feedback regarding the purchase and quality of the products so we can continue to update the list.

If you have questions regarding COVID-19 PPE and supplies, please contact David Schemenauer (dschemenauer@marc.org).
