NERIC offers a variety of services, some of which are not directly available to districts in other regions of the state through their local BOCES.
School districts aligned with a BOCES other than the Capital Region BOCES may obtain services through NERIC through a cross contract.
An additional four and a half percent cross contracting administrative assessment is added to the cost when NERIC services are contracted for by a component school district in another BOCES. This fee helps offset legacy costs (primarily retiree health insurance) incurred by Capital Region BOCES on behalf of NERIC employees. This fee is clearly stated on all preliminary and final service cross-contracts generated by the Capital Region BOCES/NERIC.
