If you work in a school or school district you know firsthand how difficult it is to find and buy the right technology. TEC’s mission is to help you and your schools get real value from technology. We know you are busy. TEC will do all the work; you get the insight, support and negotiating power our services provide.

Technology for Education Consortium (“TEC”) Participation Commitment

I understand that The Technology for Education Consortium (TEC) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to bring transparency, efficiency, and collaboration to K-12 schools engaged in evaluating and purchasing edtech products and services. We believe that greater transparency and better information will allow school districts to improve results, reduce costs and support new product development.

I understand that TEC is inviting my district/school association and other districts/school associations to participate in TEC’s Year-One, the term of which is January 1, 2016 – December 31, 2016, procurement analysis project, at no charge.

I commit to working with TEC on this one-year project. Specifically I agree to support TEC’s analysis by completing TEC’s surveys and when possible providing access to copies of contracts and other relevant documents that include the costs of technology devices and software.

As a benefit of my participation, I understand that TEC will provide me with reports and analysis showing my district’s costs and contract terms in comparison to those of other participating Year One districts.

I understand that there is no cost to my district for this Year-One participation and that, in year two, TEC hopes to offer an option to participate in a consortium procurement process through a TEC membership. I understand that there is no obligation for my district or me to participate in the Year Two program, and my participation in year one analysis will help me determine the value of participating in a TEC procurement for my district.

By registering for membership, I understand that my name, my district’s name and submitted contact information will be included on TEC’s internal member roster. I also understand that the roster will be managed as described in TEC’s Data Policy document available at http://teched.dev/data-policy .
