Vendor Policy

How do I become a MEEC Vendor?

In providing its members opportunities to license education hardware, software and services at competitive prices, MEEC will work with education appropriate vendors to establish agreements on behalf of MEEC members.

MEEC, hosted by the University System of Maryland, generally follows University System of Maryland Procurement Policies and Procedures guidelines. Vendors are selected for MEEC agreements through a competitive process.  In most cases, a Request for Proposal process is used where a vendor is selected for best value, based on both technical qualifications and price.  Rarely, in specific cases, agreements may be negotiated with sole source vendors.

Announcements related to the release of a solicitation document are posted to the MEEC website (  under News from MEEC.  Solicitations can often be located at the State of Maryland’s eMaryland Marketplace and on the website of the issuing institution.
