The Cooperative Purchasing Network (TCPN) in Texas recently awarded CounterTrade Products, Inc. a multi-million dollar annual contract for technology solutions enabling hundreds of government and educational entities access to efficiently priced IT services.

The TCPN contract satisfies the technological needs of government entities and educational institutions through a national procurement vehicle. This agreement enables agencies to purchase several categories of technology products at significantly discounted prices, including accessories, software, workstations, portables and interactive technology made specifically for a classroom environment.

“To say we are excited to win this contract would be an understatement,” said Joe Boglino, Vice President of Sales of CounterTrade Products. “This agreement allows state government organizations and education customers to gain access to an IT commodity contract that offers the very best pricing in the marketplace today. With this contract, we will have the opportunity to implement cutting-edge technology to help public sector organizations across the country meet their business goals. We are thrilled to be associated with such a great government contracting vehicle.”

TCPN evaluated proposals based on vendors’ past performance, nation-wide IT service delivery capabilities, commitment to customer satisfaction and the breadth of technology products offered. Additionally, candidates were mandated to provide environmentally friendly products, web ordering options and comprehensive technical support.

“We assess our vendors through a number of stringent categories and CounterTrade Products clearly met our standards as a leader in their industry,” said Jason Wickel, Senior VP of TCPN. “We are happy to have CounterTradeProducts and their vast product line available to our members at the most cost efficient price available.”
