By joining NERCOMP, member schools pool their buying power for deep discounts on licenses for everything from server and office software to security and cloud storage.
Vendors can connect with a huge audience of potential customers with the added convenience of one-stop negotiation and administration via a consortium agreement with NERCOMP. Institutional license and/or service agreements are then entered into directly between individual consortium members and vendors.
NERCOMP negotiates discounted pricing and favorable terms with its vendor partners and helps to facilitate these agreements on behalf of its consortium members and vendor partners. In order to participate in these NERCOMP discounts your institution must be in good membership standing with NERCOMP throughout the term of the agreement. Though the vast majority of NERCOMP members can benefit from the discounted pricing options, NERCOMP membership does not guarantee eligibility to participate in all vendor agreements.
