A Deeper Dive Into NetDocuments Government Contract Vehicles
You’ve gathered requirements, evaluated technologies, gotten all the right people to sign off on acquiring new technology, and now comes the hard part — procurement. IDIQs, BPAs, GWACs...the contracting officer is throwing out a bunch of complex terms, options, and estimates of how long it will take to get through negotiations. NetDocuments believes our public sector customers should have contracting options that are a lot like our solutions — easy to use.
Thanks to our partnership with DLT Solutions, NetDocuments has access to a variety of essential federal, state, and local government, and higher education contracts. As the premier government solutions aggregator, DLT creates value for technology partners like NetDocuments by simplifying the procurement process for all levels of government and higher education institutions, enabling their public sector customers to make smarter technology choices.
