States Band Together for Large-Scale Cloud Purchasing Agreement
Utah has taken the lead on what state IT leaders have hailed as the largest cloud hosting services agreement to date. In just a few short months, the final details will be ironed out on a cooperative agreement that provides a clear path to cloud services for a host of states.
Through the National Association of State Procurement Officers (NASPO) Value Point program, state officials and their partners have been hashing out the details of what will equate to a collective procurement agreement expected to benefit more than 34 states. The Value Point platform gives states purchasing similar items cooperative buying power as one organization rather than on a state by state basis.
