Selecting a service provider begins with a challenge that member institutions are experiencing or a common need from the broader R&E community that could be solved with a cloud-based solution. The process often begins when a member or a group of institutions identifies a service provider who may have a potential solution. The next steps for consideration to be evaluated for inclusion in the NET+ program are articulated in the Service Intake process. Internet2 Higher Education Members or Service Providers interested in bringing forward a service should review the intake process and contact netplus@internet2.edu with any questions or to indicate interest in participating.


The sponsored service proceeds through the process identified by the NET+ lifecycle, including thorough research and testing, and early adopter participation. Ultimately, these efforts lead to the announcement of the service for general availability to the higher education community.
