CAUDIT provides vendors a unique opportunity to establish broad opportunities, agreements and offers to the Higher Education and Research Sector in the region. We have a strong tradition of working closely with vendors to the benefit of CAUDIT members, the sector overall and vendors alike.
The key objectives of CAUDIT's vendor engagements are as follows:
- To simplify processes;
- To share information, good practice and technology roadmaps;
- To aggregate demand for the benefit of members and vendors;
- To provide standardisation within the sector where possible; and
- To reduce costs for members and vendors.
