Who can use the CALNET Statewide Contracts?

Most Executive Branch State agencies are required to use the CALNET Statewide Contracts to purchase mandatory telecommunications and network services; however, the CALNET contracts can also be used by federal agencies, and local public entities that are 100% tax-supported and non-profit or have an eligible joint powers agreement.

The following are examples of customers using CALNET Statewide Contracts:

  • State Departments and Agencies
  • State Colleges
  • State Universities
  • Community Colleges
  • Schools
  • Libraries
  • Cities
  • Counties
  • Special Districts (Water, Fire, etc.)
  • 100% tax-supported agency
  • An agency with a Joint Powers Agreement (JPA)
  • Federally recognized Indian Tribes
Why use the CALNET Statewide Contracts?

CALNET Statewide Contracts contacts provide robust, reliable, and high availability telecommunications services at special rates. CALNET Statewide Contracts offer awarded contractors a larger customer base than any other qualified government purchasing vehicle, which encourages contractors to offer lower pricing and more favorable terms, conditions and Service Level Agreements (SLA’s). This collective buying power of the whole public sector in the State generates lower rates and better services.

Additional benefits of using CALNET:

  • Cost effective, reliable services.
  • Services are competitively bid.
  • Eliminates individual customer procurement costs and risk.
  • Industry standard or better Service Level Agreements.
  • CALNET Program staff that provides excellent customer support.
  • CALNET Program staff manages contractors to ensure quality performance.
  • No term commitment for standard catalog priced services.
