DON’T LET YOUR CATEGORY TWO E-RATE DOLLARS GO UNUSED!

The Educational Technology Purchasing Consortium (OETC) has streamlined the process for their members interested in making category two purchases.  Member institutions can skip the complicated process of filing Form 470 when utilizing E-Rate funding.  This is great news for those wanting to take advantage of E-Rate dollars.

The majority of Pacific Northwest school districts are already members of OETC. You can confirm your organization’s membership by viewing the membership list at: https://store.oetc.org/membership.
