Utilized more than any other contract category at Sourcewell, Technology Catalog Solutions is growing with even more resources for government, schools, and nonprofits.

Three vendors have earned contracts in the Technology Catalog Solutions category, adding to Sourcewell's diverse line of options and opportunities. Longtime awarded vendor CDW-G was re-awarded, joined by Connection and SHI International – both new to Sourcewell.

Sourcewell Contract Administrator David Duhn says this category of contracts has gained its popularity through an increased reliance on and demand for technology and the ability to one-stop-shop for complete technology solutions.

“Our catalog allows them to buy from multiple manufacturers to create a solution, all from one source, and know that it will all work together,” Duhn explains. “Recognizing the value placed on this category by schools, nonprofits, and government agencies, these solutions will allow us to continue meeting the growing technology needs of our members in an ever changing and rapidly evolving marketplace.”

Following a competitive solicitation process, Sourcewell awarded these cooperative purchasing contracts:

CDW-G* | 081419-CDW
Cloud, technology solutions and accessories, hardware, software, peripherals, professional services.

Connection | 081419-GVC
