CETPA and MICROSOFT STRATEGIC ALLIANCE
Supported by SHI
CETPA is pleased to announce the CETPA and Microsoft Strategic Alliance (CAMSA) program supported by SHI. This is a California statewide purchasing contract with Microsoft for the Educational Enrollment Solution (EES) program. This contract can serve as a master purchasing vehicle for K12 educational institutions in the state of California. Click here to download the announcement.

It is our intent to provide California K12 school districts with the aggressive pricing, service and support for EES Microsoft licensing. CETPA went through a rigorous and competitive RFP process to engage with a Large Account Reseller (LAR) and selected SHI to provide reseller service for these accounts. Based on the results of the request for proposal SHI will provide:
- Low pricing for Microsoft products
- Expertise in regards to products choices and options
- Quick response and turn around with quotes, forms and paperwork
This program offers Level C pricing through the EES program to K12 educational organizations with 25 FTE (Full Time Equivalent) staff. As seen below, this had only been available to organizations with 10,000 or more FTE. (Please note that FTE does not mean Full time Employee. For more information, see the FAQ page.)
Microsoft approached CETPA as the recognized organization that represents educational technologists in the state of California. Many of our CETPA members already understand the benefits of the EES licensing program. The problem was that only medium to large districts were eligible based on FTE staff counts. Now with this alliance with Microsoft, the FTE count has been lowered to 25 so that more schools and districts can participate. All organizations enter into the program at level C pricing which represents the 10,000 FTE discount level. This can represent a significant savings for many schools.
