NJSBA has partnered with Edge, New Jersey’s nonprofit research and education network and technology partner, to connect our members with state of the art technology at competitively bid and negotiated prices. As part of a true PK-20 technology purchasing collaborative, our members have access to technical expertise and contracting vehicles to save time and money.
We chose Edge as a valued partner because of their depth of expertise in education technology and its status as a valid state purchasing cooperative called EdgeMarket. Unlike other purchasing vehicles, EdgeMarket focuses exclusively on connecting members with industry-leading technologies and services.
This means you now have a dedicated technology advocate on your side working with NJSBA to identify and provide the most important technology solutions for the PK-12 community. Edge has been providing thought leadership and a streamlined purchasing process to the education community for years, and by joining forces with NJSBA will be better able to serve the entire education community in the state.
Edge’s technological and procurement expertise from PK-20 combined with NJSBA’s guidance for PK-12 schools and districts will enable you to quickly identify, onboard, and find success with transformational technologies.
EdgeMarket is also available to other public sector entities such as municipalities and counties. As a result of this availability, Edge and NJSBA aim to accelerate the adoption of shared services between local schools and districts and their related government entities.
