General information

MHECtech Technology Purchasing

This technology purchasing program seeks to leverage the combined volume of campuses in member states by negotiating favorable agreements with technology vendors. Contracts are only entered into when they provide institutions with discounts they are unlikely to find in other arenas. As a result, MHEC contracts provide significant savings.
