|NJAET Action Alert - January 26, 2016|
Dear NJAET Members:
It has come to my attention that Apple products are no longer on the state contract purchasing system. This would greatly impact our schools and students by limiting the types of technology that are used and purchased under this contract. Using the bidding process adds a layer of difficulty and increases the time necessary to purchase Apple products. Many schools in New Jersey use this brand of computer related products. This affects our students and limits our ability to support our students in schools that use Apple products. Please write ASAP to any or all of the contact people listed below so that they are aware of this scenario and might act to help us. Please address them politely and explain the issue and ask for their support to get Apple back on the state contract.
David Hespe, Commissioner of Education
Evo Popoff, Assistant Commissioner/Chief Innovation Officer
Laurence Cocco Director, Office of Educational Technology
