Hearing Aid Procurement Program
State of Maine Contracts for the Procurement of Hearing Aids
Background and Purpose
The Division of Purchases has entered into contractual relationships with a number of hearing aid manufacturers by participating in a multi-state cooperative agreement administered by the State of Minnesota Cooperative Purchasing Venture (MNCPV). These contracts offer significant discounts from list price on a variety of types and models of hearing aids.
The contracts were put in place primarily to serve Department of Labor, Division of Vocational Rehabilitation clients and Department of Health and Human Services, Office of MaineCare Services clients, but any state agency may utilize these contracts. Please click on the Departments names above to be directed to their websites (if available) relating to the State of Maines hearing aid procurement program.
Opportunities for Municipalities and School Districts
The State of Maine, Division of Purchases is committed to providing purchasing opportunities for municipalities, political subdivisions, school districts, and other public entities. We encourage our contractors to make their services available to these entities through separate contracts but under the same terms offered to the State of Maine. For questions concerning contracting with any of the State of Maines contracted hearing aid vendors, contact the Division of Purchases at (207) 624-7340.
