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@newdream.org.  The next call is scheduled for Wednesday November 
19th 3:00-4:00 EST.

Thank you!
