The 2017-26 MEEC Hardware Agreement provides a larger number of vendors, a wider range of products, along with a greater variety of hardware than in previous contracts. The Agreement provides for more competitive pricing for each hardware category and by manufacturer within each category. While this adds some complexity to the final results, that complexity is balanced against a significant gain in economic benefit to MEEC members.
Fully executed contracts were established with each vendor for the period of March 15, 2017 – March 14, 2026. There will be expansion windows in year 3 and 6 of the contract. Contracts were awarded through a competitive proposal process, following the USM procurement policies and procedures. Approval was granted by the USM, Board of Regents.
