Dell’s Midwestern Higher Education Compact (MHEC) Technology Solutions Contract is a competitively sourced full catalog contract and offers Dell’s total line of available hardware, software, services, and 3rd party products. The contract allows for separate software licensing (i.e., click through, etc.).
Through a sister compact with WICHE (Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education), this competitively bid contract is available to all State of Oregon state agencies, cities, counties, local subdivisions, higher education institutions (public and private not-for-profit), K-12 districts and schools and non-profit organizations (education-related only).
MHECtech purchasing power is available to a wide variety of entities within our member states, including:
Higher Education (public and not-for-profit private)

» Non-Profit Organizations (Education-Related only)
» Cities, Counties, Local Subdivisions

» Non-MHEC States
MHEC contracts provide significant savings in the technology area. We are careful to only enter into contracts where we can provide institutions in our member states with discounts they are unlikely to receive in any other arena. We monitor every contract on an annual basis to ensure that vendor offerings are kept current and that new features are added as the market demands. New contracts are constantly in development, so you can look forward to a steady stream of market leaders on these pages.
For more information about each vendor and the statutory authority to purchase from MHEC contracts view the contract page which has a list of links to the statute and fully executed contracts available to download. https://www.mhec.org/contracts
