Q
What do I need to include on my purchase order?
A

Please make sure your purchase order is itemized and includes the REMC item number, the model number/name, the reseller product number (if available), the quantity of each item to be purchased, and the unit price. A quote may be attached, but the purchase order should still be itemized. Sometimes the item numbers for the warranties, accessories, and upgrades are located on the spec sheet, linked from the awarded item page – be sure to include on the Purchase Order.  

Q
How do I register as a SPOT user?
A

  1. Login and click your name in the black bar across the top of the screen.

Q
Device Purchasing Forecast
A

Open for 2 weeks in February.  The goal is to aggregate volume and we provide this information to vendors. We strongly encourage districts to submit a forecast in SPOT for any device purchases being considered to get the best possible discounts from vendors.  Remember, there is no commitment to buy what you forecast, but the higher the numbers, the better discounts we can get from vendors! But PLEASE be honest in forecasting what you may purchase.
