The E-rate Program and its attendant processes can often be confusing and frustrating. A failure to comply with the ever-changing array of rules can jeopardize your organization’s entitlement to much-needed discounts on eligible equipment and services. A consultant can help you to navigate this regulatory minefield to reduce risk and maximize funding opportunities.

As such, they must understand how to best leverage the E-rate Program to help achieve their technology objectives efficiently and in a cost-effective manner. In that vein, IT and telecommunications procurement decisions must be calculated and driven by long-term necessity rather than hasty, short-term gap-filling measures.
