    SLED organizations receive funds from the federal government in the form of statutory funds for programs like Medicaid and education, grant funds and in some instances stimulus payments. Federal funds received offer IT opportunities for suppliers and partners. Each organization will track and utilize these funds differently. There are many free resources available from the federal government like www.grants.gov to track upcoming grant opportunities or www.usaspending.gov to see where grant funds were awarded.
    Each of the more 90,000 government organizations that make up the SLED market has unique buying regulations and preferences. In general, SLED organizations will prefer competitively bid contracts, be those state issued or cooperative contracts. Typically, preferences and regulations are published on each government’s procurement website in their procurement manuals. If you need assistance in researching your customer’s buying preferences, our Market Intelligence team can help. Please reach out to your supplier manager or channel development manager to learn more.
    The General Services Administration (GSA) has made GSA Schedule 70 available to all SLED organizations through cooperative purchasing. Each individual entity can decide whether they would like to participate in using those GSA Schedule 70 contracts. We can help you research your customer to determine whether they use GSA Schedule 70 contracts.
