This contract benefits state agencies by allowing the agency to purchase data center infrastructure goods at a set, agreed upon price. This allows agencies a quick purchasing process by bypassing the need for a public solicitation.
Another positive benefit is having a single point of contact for multiple sites and agencies. By utilizing Johnston Technologies, you can standardize equipment at a multitude of sites. This further streamlines the purchasing, installation, and maintenance processes and allows for quicker response times in emergency situations.
