Contract Information

Statewide Contract # 1-23-84-07 is a mandatory, exclusive Leveraged Purchasing Agreement, initiated by CA DGS, which serves to provide a method for ALL State of CA agencies to purchase body armor and body armor related accessories. California local government agencies CAN participate as well without administrative burden. (See contract user instructions for more information) 

This contract offers extremely competitive pricing, due to it being a publicly solicited RFP and the largest domestic law enforcement body armor contract in the United States. The ability for local government agencies to piggyback this contract is advantageous because departments that do not have a large headcount can leverage the same pricing that the State of California utilizes, without having to go to bid.

This contract provides several different types of armor at fixed prices for specific items, while also offering Point Blank’s entire catalog at a 42% Discount from MSRP. This flexibility is key for agencies that have specific product needs for their armor and accessories. As another advantage, Individual Officers can order from Black Box Safety and enjoy that same 42% discount on all Point Blank products after providing Law Enforcement Credentials. *Custom in person sizing will not be offered for individual officer purchases.

Outside of our Body Armor Contract, Black Box Safety sells a large array of Law Enforcement related products including: Optics, Communications Equipment, Apparel, Flashlights, Individual First Aid Kits, Holsters, Eye Protection, and more. We offer exclusive Law Enforcement discounts on each of these products.
