  2. Look for the "Statewide Technology Buy" catalog and/or vendor, in the Marketplace, add items to your cart and check out with a PO or credit card number.  Your cart will need to be approved by your Business Manager or other designated approver (see also paragraph 3 below).
  3. After logging in, to view all vendors that were awarded line items, scroll down on the left hand column and click on the "Statewide Technology Buy Vendors" category.  You'll have to scroll back up to see the vendor "tiles" with vendor names and you may click on the "tile" to view information about the contract and the vendor.
  4. Some of the awarded STB vendors have a separate catalog that may be searched. 
  5. AEA Purchasing members may also contact Laurie Hoing to obtain PDF files for the categories listed under the "Buyer's Guide" tabs below.

Pricing may still be checked through the Marketplace and then ordered through vendors directly, referencing the contract number STB2020AEAPURCH.

Please contact Laurie Hoing, or 515-270-0405 x 14024 if you have questions or need assistance with the Marketplace.
