Excess Delivery Acquisition Program (EDAP)

The Excess Delivery Acquisition Program (EDAP) are course deliveries available at cost to our target audience in excess of what funding will allow us to deliver. The EDAP is also available to Federal agencies or organizations, DOD or private sector entities.

If you would like more information about the EDAP and how to enroll, contact TEEX through the course specific contact numbers or email addresses listed in our course catalog.

General Services Administration (GSA) Pricing Advantage

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) establishes long-term government wide contracts with approved entities to provide services at discount pricing. Price reduction, based on an awarded GSA contract, is at the core of the GSA Schedule contract. State and local government entities may use GSA to purchase products and services and benefit from the extended reduced pricing. TEEX is currently an approved vendor on GSA Schedule 84 and Schedule 874.

To request a course delivery with the GSA pricing advantage, please contact TEEX/NERRTC through the course specific contact numbers or email addresses listed in our course catalog. When TEEX/NERRTC receives your request, we will provide an estimate of the course delivery cost. If that cost estimate is acceptable, TEEX/NERRTC will submit the cost estimate to DHS/FEMA to request their approval. Once DHS/FEMA approval is received, TEEX/NERRTC will coordinate scheduling for delivery of the course(s).

From the well prepared presentations and class activities to the great suggestions for where-to-go; everything was beautifully organized and thoughtfully planned. I especially appreciated how the message of doing good work for the good of our community was endorsed each day. The week was encouraging and fun with ample take-away ideas!
