National Consortium Contract Discounts

The Quilt / Carahsoft National Consortium Contract

  • Through CEN’s participation in The Quilt, a national coalition of R&E Networks, our members benefit from discounted pricing on many popular hardware and software solutions from authorized resellers you likely already use.  Pricing is extremely competitive and available to all CEN members including public sector and public non-profits.  It’s easy and all you have to do is ask your reseller.  If they don’t know or for some reason have lower pricing, let CEN and Carahsoft know, and we’ll work to get it better for all.
