VLCT has compiled a list of regional IT service providers and security firms that provide a range of services including managed services, audits and assessments, and cybersecurity support services. This is not an exhaustive list. Additional IT and cybersecurity resources are available on our Technology homepage.
Before you select a vendor:
- Conduct a technology assessment. See our Technology Assessments - Learn about Your Systems page.
- Get proposals from vendors for services (see our new Request for Quote (RFQ) template, sample RFQ and service catalog). You can also access contracts, templates, vendor, and debarment lists through the State of Vermont Office of Purchasing and Contracting.
- Ask lots of questions about structure, staff, services, support, training, pricing, and security. See VLCT’s Questions to Ask IT Vendors resource.
- Be sure to provide vendors with any unique legal and/or regulatory requirements that apply to your organization.
- Adopt a process for reviewing proposals and services.
- Compare and contrast offerings from different organizations.
- Get a second opinion from an outside IT consultant.
- Before entering a contract with a provider, have an attorney review the proposal and proposed contract.
Take time to review any company you engage with for staff credentials and certifications, consumer reviews and complaints, customer ratings, and information on security breaches. A sample of government and consumer websites that can help are listed below.
- Office of the Vermont Attorney General
- Federal Communications Commission Enforcement and FTC Consumer Complaint Center
- State of Vermont Office of Purchasing and Contracting Debarment List
- Better Business Bureau
- Ripoff Report
Crowdsourced consumer ratings platforms such as Angie's List or Yelp also provide customer feedback on all types of businesses and contractors.
Please note that VLCT has not vetted these organizations and provides no endorsements of any particular vendor at this time. Vendors, if you would like to be included on future iterations of this list, please contact email@example.com.
