NJPA is a proud member of the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI). Founded in 1944, the NCAI is the oldest, largest, and most representative American Indian and Alaska Native organization serving broad interests of tribal governments and communities.

NCAI, a non-profit organization, advocates for a bright future for generations to come by taking the lead to gain consensus on a constructive and promising vision for Indian Country. The organization’s policy issues and initiatives are driven by the consensus of their diverse membership, which consists of American Indian and Alaska Native tribal governments, tribal citizens, individuals, and Native and non-Native organizations.

National Joint Powers Alliance® (NJPA) is excited to be in partnership with the National Tribal Emergency Management Council (NTEMC) and honored with the opportunity to improve nation-to-nation relationships between tribes, governments, and corporate America.  We have formed an exclusive, national relationship that provides all Tribal Nations access to over 170 national competitively bid NJPA contract purchasing solutions. Affiliation with NJPA and NTEMC offers the opportunity for tribes to leverage national volume contract pricing on multiple areas of procurement to include; school supplies, technology, fleet related solutions, maintenance supplies and equipment, furniture , power generators, facility construction projects, and much more. 

NJPA firmly believes in the mission that has been set forth by the NTEMC and therefore has instituted a funding solution pertaining to the purchases made through NJPA contracts by Tribal Nations. Like many other agencies, NJPA supports the initiatives of NTEMC and is honored to provide this funding vehicle allowing NTEMC to become a self-efficient organization.
