Why Go Green

Guide for City Staff

City staff can buy this equipment through the Technology Marketplace contract. Unlike other citywide contracts, the Technology Marketplace is a collection of prequalified vendors - not a list of products. Vendors on the Technology Marketplace contract maintain listings of electronic products that meet the City's requirements, and also offer other services such as packaging takeback.
