Why use the CALNET 3 Contract?
State-of-the-art services and equipment are included in the contract at special rates. Because this contract affords the contract vendors a larger customer base than any qualified government purchaser would have alone, the contract is able to offer lower rates based on the collective buying power of the whole public sector in the State.
Because this contract is the result of an extensive competitive bidding process, agencies can purchase equipment and services directly from the contract, with the confidence that all government requirements for competitive bidding have already been met.
In addition, STND staff trained to manage the CALNET Master Contract are available to answer your questions, and to provide information and assistance in working with the vendors to learn more about the State purchasing requirements and OTech responsibilities.
