Membership Terms

Participation Agreement

By accessing, browsing, or using ILTPP services or by accepting the Agreement during membership registration, the Member agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Membership Agreement.

Nature of Service

ILTPP is a statewide cooperative of Illinois K-12 educational organizations that aggregate our buying power and expertise to procure technology products and services at better prices than is available to an individual organization. ILTPP’s mission is to provide accessible, high quality and affordable learning resources and opportunities that transform lives and strengthen education communities of our members.

Member Benefits

Membership is free and will allow you to view ILTPP contracts, make quote requests, and participate in Member-only events and pricing opportunities.  As a Member, you may have the opportunity to participate in one of our committee groups.

Membership Eligibility

All PK-12 school districts and educational service agencies in Illinois are eligible to participate in ILTPP contracts, including the following:

  • Public PK-12 districts
  • Private PK-12 schools
  • Regional Offices of Education & Programs
  • Special Education Districts & Cooperatives
  • Vocational Technology Schools
  • Learning Technology Centers
  • Educational Service Agencies

Additional entities may be eligible depending on the individual contracts. Please contact the ILTPP Program Manager if you do not see your agency category listed above.

Membership Application

Eligible institutions may apply for Membership. Following approval of the institutional membership account, individual users from the institution must apply for accounts to access benefits and services, including but not limited to exclusive ILTPP pricing.

Applicants completing the institutional and individual membership application certify that they have the authority to join ILTPP on behalf of their institution. Third party service agencies, like technology support firms, may not join ILTPP as an institutional member but may join as an individual member representing an approved institutional member.

Membership is valid for three years, at which time members will be prompted to renew their membership. The individual membership account is nontransferable.

Privacy Policy

ILTPP’s information and collection policies with respect to privacy, specifically with Member Information, can be found in the Privacy Policy.

Transactions

All purchases are made through manufacturers or resellers. Members do not purchase directly through ILTPP, and Members are responsible for all costs related to purchases through ILTPP contracts and services. Pricing and discounts listed under vendor pages are monitored by ILTPP but are ultimately the vendor’s responsibility to ensure accuracy. ILTPP is not liable for any pricing that is inaccurately displayed.

No personal purchases may be made through any of our programs. Additionally, items are not intended for resale use by an organization to any staff, student, or for any other retail sale purposes.

Availability and Use of the Site

The ILTPP website is available 24-hours a day. If contacting a vendor directly, be aware that the vendor will only be available during their respective business hours. Vendor business hours are typically listed on their website. Similarly, quote requests may be placed at any time, and vendors will only respond to requests during their regular business hours. ILTPP encourages members to report vendor response times that are longer the six hours.
