Minnesota IT Hardware Standards

The right products    •    The right price    •    Less hassle

Smart buyers consider Minnesota standards when selecting the I.T. products they use.

Products and standards are refreshed (updated) as often as every six months. The refresh process is critical to providing a set of standards that are in sync with the overall industry and adequately reflect the needs of those who rely on these standards (users). Product pricing is adjusted by vendors monthly.
