Choice Partners honors top-performing vendors


Companies with an awarded government contract available through Choice Partners were honored at a vendor appreciation luncheon in early January at Harris County Department of Education.

James Colbert, Jr., superintendent of Harris County Department of Education, thanked the vendors for upholding high standards of quality and helping HCDE serve all learners. He noted that the vendors are no different from HCDE in being dedicated to customer service.

“Our goal is to provide impeccable service to you, and in turn, we want to provide impeccable service to client school districts,” Colbert said. “At the end of the day, we want to have a positive impact on this community. And we’re going to do it through education.”

Choice Partners Director Jeff Drury recognized more than 70 companies for their contract use, and 32 were called out for leading in vendor contract usage. Jeremy Morgan, Millennium Project Solutions, spoke to the crowd, encouraging vendors to rely on the expertise of Choice Partners to guide them through the procurement process.

“Sixty percent of our business today is through our Choice Partners contract,” Morgan said, later referring to the assistance his business received as “astronomical.”

“When I saw the vendors recognized last year, I set a goal to be on this list,” said Stacy Duke, Butler Business Products.
