The new contract extends the successful five-year relationship that provides state, local, education and government (SLED) agencies cost savings and efficiency in the procurement process.
"Through NCPA’s membership buying power, members receive best value pricing and favorable contract terms to purchase our advanced communications and video collaboration tools, backup and disaster recovery, secure file sharing, touchless check-in systems and more," said Lainey Gordon, Government & Education Vertical Practice Manager at NEC.
