The University of Vermont recently contracted for its ERP system using a process that involved dual track negotiations with two vendors. We obtained solid contracts with our vendor for a competitive price in record time with a high level of commitment to ensure overall installation success. Other institutions could use similar strategies to ensure client-vendor accountability and to maximize the likelihood of an on time and under budget installation.
