About the SDPC Preferred Provider Program (P3)

The Student Data Privacy Consortium’s (SDPC) focuses on collaborative activities and does ot attempt to replace products or services available in the marketplace, allowing for ingenuity and opportunities for vendors to be a part of this trusted Community.

Recently, there have been multiple requests from local and state agencies for additional legal, implementation, professional learning, etc. support.  These additional “services” requested may or may not be in the core activities of, but are impacted by, the Consortium tools, effective practices, etc.   The SDPC leadership do not wish to enter into competition with community members but do want to play a supporting leadership role in the numerous requests from members to make the Project a success.  In an attempt to balance these factors, the SDPC Preferred Provider Program (P3) has been developed. 
The SDPC Preferred Provider Program (P3) consists of:
  • A set of SDPC Services are established and approved by SDPC leadership
  •  A call sent to marketplace providers to become a cadre of entities that can provide such goods and/or services to interested customers and enter into a contractual agreement to become a “SDPC Preferred Provider” (P3) containing a set of established rules and benefits
