U.S. Communities Adds Tech Depot Technology Products Contract
The U.S. Communities program announces that Tech Depot, Office Depot’s technology division has become the newest supplier under its Governmental Purchasing Alliance. Tech Depot was added as a vendor partner to the existing GTSI contract with Fairfax County, VA, via Amendment No. 23, which also extended the contract through April 2009. This new partnership leverages the core competencies of each organization, combining GTSI’s strength and expertise in technology services with the advantages of Tech Depot’s unique, customer-focused delivery model for technology products. Through this arrangement Tech Depot will honor the pricing of the existing technology contract, and purchases made from Tech Depot count toward the annual rebate program in GTSI’s contract. The product offering will remain intact and continue to be available to all local government agencies and nonprofit organizations without the need for additional solicitation.
Tech Depot has been selling technology products and services online since 1998, formerly under the Computers4Sure, as well as the Solutions4Sure, brand names. 4Sure.com was acquired by Office Depot in 2001 as a strategic addition to its e-commerce technology products and service offerings. Office Depot has held the U.S. Communities office supplies contract since 1996 and the contract has been a great success story for both organizations. Based upon these results and the existing compatible relationship, U.S. Communities worked with GTSI, Office Depot, and Tech Depot to develop the mutually beneficial partnership between GTSI and Tech Depot.
