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. NERCOMP negotiates contract terms and helps to facilitate vendor and NERCOMP member agreements. Actual licenses are directly between members and vendors. In order to participate in these NERCOMP discounts your institution must be a in good membership standing with NERCOMP throughout the term of the agreement. In addition, eligibility for a NERCOMP member to participate in a vendor agreement is determined by the specific terms and conditions in each respective contract. 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.
