Schools across the country now have the opportunity to purchase Google Chromebooks through the All of Government (AoG) procurement process.

AoG contracts provide one single supply agreement between approved suppliers and the government for items such as computers, travel and office consumables to provide savings to schools.

Interest in Chromebooks is increasing as schools and businesses around the world the move to web-based applications and storage options to communicate and collaborate more effectively.
