 W Welcome to the NET+ Business, Procurement and Legal Advisory Committee wiki.

This committee is comprised of leaders in the higher education legal and procurement community and is charged with providing feedback and making recommendations to the VP NET+ and Internet2 leadership. This group will continually refine its charge with the NET+ program leadership, exploring areas such as:

  • Provide advice to the NET+ program on key program decisions that may impact procurement, including:
    • Partnerships with procurement consortia
    • Using resellers and distributors vs. direct agreements
    • Using a standard form of Customer Agreement vs. aligning on key terms
  • Update educational materials related to the NET+ program for sharing with procurement officers and legal departments
  • Review and update the procurement analysis worksheet template and determine if a revised or successor document is needed
  • Determine what are the key areas of focus for contract management
  • Develop key criteria for supplier management
