  • E-Rate Support -- Many of Statewide Contracts have been certified (Form 470) for use under the Universal Services Administrative Company (USAC), Schools and Libraries Program (“E-Rate program”) Exit[http://www.usac.org/sl/].  Instead of doing their own Form 470 and corresponding competitive process, eligible Schools and Library Cooperative Members may choose to use the State’s Statewide Contracts to satisfy their filing requirements under this program and be reimbursed for significant portions of their expenses for telecommunications services, Internet access, internal connections, and basic maintenance of internal connections.
