Finding the Right Purchasing Solution
Eisele-Dyrli, Kurt
District Administration, v47 n7 p54-56, 58, 60 Jul 2011
School administrators are faced with a wide variety of choices and a huge market when it comes to products and technology. According to a report issued in March by market research firm Compass Intelligence, school districts spend over $18 billion annually on IT-related purchases, and the market is projected to grow to nearly $21 billion by 2015. The thousands of choices from a wide and ever-changing array of companies present both an advantage and a challenge: More selection allows administrators to find a solution to meet the specific needs of their districts, but narrowing the field can seem like an overwhelming task. In this article, technology administrators share strategies for purchasing the products and technology that will be most effective at meeting district needs.
