Summary
State departments of education are arranging bulk purchases of hardware and software to earn discounts of 15-50 percent. The collective buys have been approved by the National Governors Assn. Thirty states have market aggregation contracts with computer vendors. Software bulk purchases are less widespread than hardware bulk purchases. Some states together with the Agency of Instructional Technology have pooled finances to develop their own software and video tapes, with 21 already available. Methods to distribute software via networking and telecommunications are also being explored as ways to reduce costs associated with technology build up.
