The Cooperative Contracts Program creates contract vehicles that satisfy statewide procurement requirements for software products, including Software as a Service (SaaS), and the associated services associated with implementing solutions built using the products. The Program combines the buying power of authorized customers to obtain volume-discounted pricing, to shorten the time required, and to make it easier for them to acquire the technology products and services that they need to improve productivity, increase efficiencies, raise levels of service to constituents, and improve regulatory compliance.
Under the Cooperative Contracts Program, customers place orders with and issue payments directly to the vendors participating in the Co-op Contracts Program.
