VMware (NYSE:VMW) has announced its inclusion in the NASPO ValuePoint’s Cloud Solutions Master Agreement, a purchasing portfolio of best-value awards designed to make the public cooperative contracting process easier for participating states.
As quoted in the press release:
The agreement — which runs through Sept. 15, 2026 — empowers states and other participating government or educational agencies with an approved Participating Addendum to acquire cloud technologies and IT solutions provided by VMware, and saves them the time and resources of researching service providers on their own.
The Master Agreement was initiated after the State of Utah, the lead public agency on the request for proposal, utilized its sourcing team to thoroughly evaluate all applicants for a number of cloud IT solutions. VMware is included in the Master Agreement as a provider of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS) cloud solutions.
“We are proud and excited that VMware’s range of IT solutions is now listed in NASPO ValuePoint’s portfolio of cloud solutions, allowing participating states, local governments and schools to more easily choose our services,” said Tim Merrigan, vice president, public sector sales, VMware. “The agreement helps public sector agencies save time, energy, and resources required to review, vet and onboard technology when they know best the services they need. This is most timely as educational and government institutions throughout the United States continue a systemic migration to cloud-based services, and we are excited to continue shepherding this movement.”
