Better education through technology integration
Education always has to make do with less. We have to prepare students to effectively participate in the societies and economies of the future, often with only the tools of yesterday at our disposal. So OETC members band together to collectively negotiate with vendors to achieve economies of scale not available to any single member. And if saving money is good, saving time is even better. OETC’s contracts save everyone time from conducting individual procurements, and our online store makes procurement fast and simple.
The members of OETC understand purchasing technology is only the first step. From Kindergarten to Higher Education the members of OETC recognize education only fulfill’s its potential and promise when instruction is adapted to leverage the advantages technology has to offer. To this end OETC has a staff of dedicated Instructional Technologists that offer a wide-range of professional development and consulting services.
Partnered with only the best
Through our competitive RFP process, OETC has negotiated contracts with some of the best vendors and manufacturers in the industry. We currently have over 70 manufacturers under a competitively bid contract covering more than 10,000 SKUs.
Governed by the membership
