Cloud solutions provided by CherryRoad include Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) â€“ which were developed specifically for state and local governments.
NASPO ValuePoint is regarded as the nationâ€™s most significant public contract cooperative due to its unparalleled value for members as well as contractors, competitive pricing, and superior terms and conditions. NASPO ValuePoint Cloud Solutions Master Agreements are only awarded through a competitive RFP to a limited number of cloud solution providers whose offerings meet stringent security and data protection requirements.
â€œBy using a cooperative contract like NASPO, the State of California can alleviate the administrative burden of purchasing and accelerate the procurement process for its multiple entities,â€ said Christopher Tilden, Director â€“ Strategic Alliances. â€œCooperative buying can help agencies attain more competitive pricing by combining economies of scale that they would likely not be able to achieve on their own.â€
