Kajeet, a provider of wireless connectivity and device management for education, government, and commercial markets, can now support educational agencies and local governments through Choice Partners, a national purchasing cooperative.
According to a news release, Choice Partners carefully evaluates vendors “to give its members confidence in complying with purchasing requirements while eliminating the lengthy bidding process.”
Kajeet will make it possible for schools and local governments to buy wi-fi hotspots, school bus wi-fi, LTE-embedded laptops, and home wireless routers to close the digital divide for students and communities.
"We are honored to be named a procurement vehicle by Choice Partners," said Michael Flood, senior vice president of public sector at Kajeet. "This partnership will significantly streamline the technology procurement process for school districts and local government leaders, enabling them to efficiently obtain the innovative connectivity solutions they need to close the digital divide, improve citizen services and achieve agency objectives. Our goal is to ensure that every student and community has access to reliable and affordable connectivity solutions for today's digital world."
Choice Partners is a division of the Harris County Department of Education. Since the 1960’s, HCDE has provided cooperative purchasing services. It rebranded in 2012 as Choice Partners. The cooperative was one of the first government cooperatives in Texas.
