Multi-Year Deal Delivers Value for Ontario’s Education and Public Sectors
Toronto, Ontario – February 14, 2017: Ontario Education Collaborative Marketplace (OECM) announced today that it has entered into a multi-year relationship with Preferred supplier partner Dell Canada Inc., to supply End-User Computing Devices and Services to the publicly-funded education sector (School Boards, Colleges and Universities), and other broader public sector entities across the province of Ontario.
The rigorous competitive procurement process was conducted in collaboration with a cross sector focus group, in adherence to the Broader Public Sector (BPS) Procurement Directive. The agreement is designed to offer significant value in savings, as well as time and effort (users of the agreement do not need to replicate the procurement process for similar products and services).
The agreement includes a wide range of technology products and services, including desktops, laptops, tablets, peripherals and accessories, comprehensive warranty services, and much more.
OECM CEO, John Sabo, states: “This agreement delivers great value to all parties, while ensuring substantial savings and benefits for Ontario’s publicly-funded education and Broader Public Sectors. Students and the public sector are really the winners here.” Karen Owen, Vice President, Supply Management and Customer Relations at OECM, echoes this opinion in her remarks that “Savings, Choice and Service are the cornerstones of our business. The power of collaborative procurement delivers both bottom-line savings and a reduction in time and effort – a real win-win for our customers.”
