Dear MiCTA K-12, Library, related Consortium Members, MiCTA E-Rate eligible Company’s, and first time visitors. This new area of the MiCTA Home Page has been created to help assist you in finding the most critical information regarding the process and procedure for the use of MiCTA’s 4 currently active 470’s and related Vendor MSA’s (Master Service Agreements), plus a link to the main E-Rate/HCF Fund Information page where you will find other related E-Rate information.
MiCTA National E-Rate 470 RFP evaluation committees, made up of MiCTA member volunteers from across the country, met to process all of the responses received as a result of MiCTA’s two 470’s filed and certified on November 9, 2013, Fiber Build –Out and Services 470 on December 10th, 2014 and Distributive Antenna Systems 470 on February 26, 2015. The Master Service Agreements (MSAs) procured thru these multiple 470 processes will be multi-year and can extend through the 2019 or 2020 of the 471 funding cycle.
Per the FCC, MiCTA K-12 and Library members who were active at the time MiCTA filed one or more of its 470’s can use the contracts awarded through the related 470 process without having to bid. The eligible member listing for each 470 can be found here along with the respective Eligible Vendors. There are also links to the MiCTA National PPT, 2017 Eligible Services List, Current Funding information, News Briefs and the “Join MiCTA” link.
The FCC has recently announced that the filing window for Funding Year 2017 will open on February 27, 2017 and close on May 11, 2017.
