Sielox was awarded a contract to provide its product portfolio and services through the PEPPM national purchasing cooperative. The PEPPM program is administered and managed by the Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit (CSIU) and allows participating schools and agencies across the country to place purchase orders for technology products without having to solicit their own bids.

The CSIU board of directors awarded the PEPPM contract to Sielox after the company had gone through stringent bid procedures demanded by local agencies and school districts that want to ensure fair, open and transparent competition. PEPPM provides a number of tools to help buyers find and select products that best suit their needs while offering potential savings in the form of piggy-backable, bid-protected procurement contracts.

“We are extremely pleased to have been awarded this exclusive contract from PEPPM and look forward to the opportunity to serve the hundreds of public service organizations participating in the PEPPM program across the country,” said Karen Evans, Sielox president. “The PEPPM contract enables numerous organizations to improve their safety and security while maximizing what are often limited technology budgets.”
