Minnesota Standards - Vendor participation agreement

Standard Products

Customer participation

The Minnesota Buy-IT program is an enterprise effort made possible through the efforts of volunteer teams dedicated to controlling costs for Information Technology. Team members (customers) with a broad base of agency and K-12 representation,invest significant time and effort to establish and maintain enterprise product standards and vendor contracts.

The vendor contracts that support the Minnesota Buy-IT program are available to government agencies (defined by statue as: Counties, Cities, Judicial bodies, Legislative offices, Libraries, K-12 and higher education) and members of the Cooperative Purchase Ventures (CPV) program.

Customer benefits:

  • Contracts offer terms and conditions that are favorable to customers
  • Standard products are carefully researched and competitively priced
  • Procurement of products is made easier when time consuming RFP is not required
