SOMERSET, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SHI International, one of the world’s largest IT solutions providers, announced that it has again been awarded a multi-year NASPO ValuePoint Software Value-Added Reseller contract. NASPO ValuePoint facilitates administration of the NASPO group contracting consortium of state Chief Procurement Officials for the benefit of cooperative procurement for state departments, institutions, agencies, and political subdivisions; as well as other eligible entities including cities, counties, special districts, community colleges, universities, and some quasi-governmental and nonprofit organizations. SHI has held similar contracts with NASPO since 2011.
SHI stood out among a competitive landscape that included more categories and awardees than ever before. Under this agreement, SHI has a master contract that includes comprehensive software awards and Microsoft-specific awards, allowing the company to provide software from industry-leading publishers as well as emerging titles to participating states and related entities. SHI offers a range of supporting services to facilitate public sector customers’ evolving needs by signing a Participating Addendum (PA).
While many addenda are signed at the state level for the benefit of both state and non-state public entities, other eligible public entities may also be authorized to sign PAs to take advantage of this agreement’s pricing and services.
