EdgeMarket is a unique cooperative purchasing entity, combining Edge’s industry expertise and community engagement with higher education and the public sector with the power of a nationally available contract vehicle.
EdgeMarket supports a growing partner ecosystem. We issue RFPs and award contracts on behalf of the entire higher education and public sector community within states that recognize out-of-state co-ops, and onboard vendor partners to streamline the procurement of essential technology and services.
