Technology Planning

 

Technology Plans
The release of the FCC's 6th Report and Order waived the technology plan requirement for applicants requesting only Priority 1 services. Subsequently, the E-rate Modernization Order ended the technology planning requirement for any E-rate services beginning July 1, 2015. However, your state department of education or department of libraries MAY require that you have a technology plan in place.

It is always best practice to carefully plan for your technology needs in order to maximize your E-rate funding.  With the E-rate Modernization Order beginning July, 2015, requests for category 2 services (Internal Connections, Managed Internal Broadband Services and Basic Maintenance of Internal Connections) are limited to a category 2 budget.  This makes it even more critical that you carefully plan for your technology needs.

Please contact Kellogg & Sovereign Consulting  if you need assistance in properly planning to effectively utilize your valuable E-rate funding.
