We have our own premier page as well, it's a great resource. But I
still get better pricing direct from my rep when I talk volume. After a
quick look at the pricing... this is actually more expensive than what
SB will pay for their systems this year from Dell.
I've been talking to our rep (Jeff Wells) about this as well and Dell is
very keen to do more with this. I believe that it will be a topic at the
Pizza conference tomorrow during the Dell session.
Sounds like we're making progress :)

We work with a number of schools and Supervisory Unions in the
For years we have been working with different vendors trying to
leverage our several small school purchases into big school pricing.
We have made arrangements with Dell to create a Premier page that our
schools can access.
The schools can go to the site, prepare quotes and then submit POs
directly to Dell for their orders.
We DO NOT get a kick back or compensation from the site, Dell or
anywhere/one else for any sales generated via this process (just to
remove any misconceptions).
The site was created under Orleans Central Supervisory Union. If you
prepare a quote, don't use the pull down to select Darla or myself as
the contact. Just enter who you want the quote sent to-yourself or
your purchasing agent.
If your schools want to be included, we can ask our Dell rep to
include you if you send me an email.
Or you can contact him directly
