What should a school do if it has 200 aging end-user devices that NEED TO BE REPLACED? How about a college or university that needs to upgrade their fleet, but does not have the time to write and advertise an RFP?
These aren’t hypotheticals; they’re real-life examples. With higher education institutions reopening and playing catch-up on procurement tasks, while impacted by pandemic-related budget cuts and staff cutbacks, many do not have the resources to go out to bid.
Fortunately, there is a solution, and Toshiba is helping colleges and universities alleviate that stress with cooperative agreements available to fill their needs. By using COOPERATIVE CONTRACTS, education buyers are realizing the same great value as competitive bidding without going through the costly and time-consuming process.
WHAT IS COOPERATIVE PURCHASING AND WHY IS THIS SIGNIFICANT?
