REMC Bid is your SAVINGS Maker!
Supplies and Equipment 2017-18
The new, two-year, supplies and equipment contracts began January 1, 2017. Vendors and pricing may have changed from the previous contracts. Customers are encouraged to check the updated REMC SAVE catalog at http://www.remcbids.org before they order.
New and expanded categories include:
Elementary writing journals
Lampless and long-life projectors
SMART learning suite
Central Michigan Paper and Unisource Worldwide/Veritiv were awarded the paper bid in December. Be sure to check the REMC SAVE bid catalog to determine which company serves the Upper and/or Lower Peninsula. Bulk purchasing paper by the pallet (40 cases) is less expensive than purchasing two separate orders of 20 cases each.
EXAMPLE: Lower Peninsula price
Product Rating Debuts
REMC SAVE recently rolled out a product star rating system for our catalog. Users must log in to submit a rating. The account menu in the upper right corner of each screen has been updated to allow users to easily manage their ratings. Product ratings allow you to share information on the product attributes you consider important and rate those attributes on a 5-star scale.
2017 REMC Device Purchasing Bid
The TRIG Device Purchasing bid will transition to a REMC SAVE bid in April 2017. There will no longer be device incentives, but we will still get some very impressive discounts on devices, and we will save you time by taking the bidding process off of your hands as your Board policy allows. Karen Hairston will continue to be the project manager for this activity, so anything you used to ask her about TRIG Device Purchasing, you can now ask her about the REMC Device Purchasing Bid!
Planning for the 2017 REMC Device Purchasing Bid is underway and specific information will be released as it is finalized. For planning purposes, here are some of the important dates for the 2017 REMC Device Purchasing Bid:
