The RISTE Board of Directors recognizes the value of consortium bidding as a way to lower costs for all of our member schools and districts.
RISTE is uniquely suited to perform this service because our membership consists of IT Directors employed by most of the public school districts. They understand the technological needs of their respective districts in a school environment and are in a position to guide the technical requirements of an aggregate bid tailored to those needs. There is no other organization with a statewide reach with access to an equivalent level of expertise and public school districts that could serve this purpose.
RISTE solicits bids and proposals for group purchasing and discounts on behalf of its member schools/districts.
