New state master contracts for Telecommunications and Internet Services have been awarded. These contracts will be available for use in the upcoming E-Rate application cycle. There is a State Master Contract Cheatsheet for the new contracts linked below. Please also see the on-demand training “Important Notice about State Master Contracts and E-Rate”

The Important Notice about State Master Contracts and E-Rate is a self-guided presentation. This e-learning training module provides guidance for LEAs on how to use the state master contracts properly. We encourage all applicants who may be doing business with vendors on the state master contract to review this presentation, whether the applicant decides to file their own form 470 or uses the state-filed form 470.
The state master contract for Verizon Wireless service has been extended through 10/31/2012 and is still eligible for use in E-rate applications in the upcoming application cycle.
