Fairfax County Government and Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) recently received more than $1.7 million in rebate revenue from two vendors, JPMorgan Chase and Office Depot.  Both vendor contracts include rebate or incentive provisions that provide annual revenue to the county and FCPS general funds based on transaction activity during a 12-month period. The rebates were announced at a check presentation on May 6 at the Fairfax County Government Center.

“By participating in these procurement contracts, we can generate revenue through the purchase of items that are needed to conduct county and FCPS business,” said Cathy Muse, director, Department of Purchasing and Supply Management.  “Every dollar of revenue is critical to supporting county and school programs in the current economic climate.”

JPMorgan Chase is the county’s contractor for procurement card services, a payment tool that functions like a credit card for authorized purchases of materials and services such as office supplies, textbooks and computers.  The rebate generated in calendar year 2009 from the use of the procurement card is $1,101,687.

The Office Depot contract is part of the U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance, a nationwide purchasing cooperative for local and state government agencies, school districts, higher education and nonprofits. The rebate generated for the county from the purchases made between April 2009 and March 2010 is $649,122.
