Mitel®, a global leader in business communications, announced today that Sourcewell, a trusted service cooperative representing 50,000 government, education and nonprofit organizations, has awarded Mitel a third consecutive contract as a preferred provider of communications and collaboration solutions.
Formerly known as the National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA), Sourcewell is one of the largest purchasing cooperatives featuring ready-to-use contracts from nationally-acclaimed vendors with a wide selection of offerings in North America. In recent years, membership in the 40-year-old organization has grown rapidly as more publicly funded agencies opt to satisfy their own RFP process by using Sourcewell’s rigorous vetting in their competitive process and combined membership buying power to save time and money. Sourcewell members currently purchase more than $3.5 billion annually through awarded contracts.
The award of Mitel’s new four-year contract with Sourcewell followed formal competitive bidding and evaluation in which Mitel scored highest in its category, meeting or exceeding established criteria for product performance, service delivery and value. The contract spans the full range of Mitel’s product portfolio, including public cloud, private cloud and on-site communications systems, as well as contact center, collaboration and mass notification applications, business phones, devices and accessories.
