State Master Contracts Available for E-rate Category 2 Services
Illinois Department of Central Management Services (CMS) has
entered into state master contracts with vendors to support ICN customers for
their E-rate category 2 purchases. The original RFP was made available via an
E-rate form 470 thus allowing schools and libraries that are ICN customers to
order from the state master contracts directly without having to issue an
E-rate form 470. The state has already conducted a competitive bidding process
and selected vendors. Click here for additional information and to view the state master contracts.

Calculate Your E-rate Savings
Eligible schools and libraries may receive discounts ranging from 20 to 90 percent on telecommunication services, depending on economic need and location. The discount is based upon the percentage of students eligible for participation in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP)
