- All offerings are managed by the vendors and questions should be directed to the vendor. We recommend reviewing technical requirements, available on vendor websites, prior to making purchases.
- FCPS is unable to make product suggestions, answer questions about purchases, or to provide product support.
- Most vendors allow one purchase annually per employee, or student, and require verification of affiliation with FCPS.
