The NJSBA’s Technology for Education and Career (TEC) program, supported by the New Jersey Department of Education, enables school districts and charter schools to purchase cloud-based services including Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), Desktop as a Service (DaaS), and more—all at deeply discounted rates. NJSBA’s TEC program is now available to districts through NJSBA’s Cooperative Pricing System.
The NJSBA Cooperative Pricing System saves money and simplifies the buying process by eliminating the competitive bidding process and allowing districts to purchase directly from NJSBA’s TEC program.
Districts belonging to the NJSBA Cooperative Pricing System through ACES membership (see full list of ACES members), can begin purchasing products through the NJSBA TEC program using the NJSBA procurement number #E-8801-ACES-CPS at any time. If you are not a member of ACES and would like to join the NJSBA cooperative pricing system, your district must pass a resolution.
