Invitation to Join the Center for a New American Dream's Computer Procurement Network

The Center for a New American Dream's Institutional Purchasing Program, which helps institutional
purchasers buy less polluting products from less polluting companies, is looking to expand state and
local government representation in its Computer Procurement Network. The Network is composed of
institutional purchasers and other experts working on green computer procurement issues and convenes
via conference call approximately once a month.


The Network is in the beginning stages of developing a set of principles for purchasing
environmentally preferable computers that would eventually be used by state and local government
purchasers as a foundation for computer specs and contract language. The Network is also working to
harmonize with other efforts such as the Computer Take-Back Campaign, Health Care Without Harm, the
Federal Electronics Challenge (FEC), and the Environmental Products Evaluation Assessment Tool
Project (EPEAT). State and local government input into this process is critical in ensuring the
principles will provide an effective framework for purchasing greener computers.


If you would like to participate in the Network, please send your contact information to
kelly@no.address The next call is scheduled for Wednesday November 19th 3:00-4:00 EST.


Thank you!
