Nebraska Universal Service Fund - E-Rate
What You Need To Do - Technology Planning

The Nebraska Universal Service Fund Task Force has approved a recommendation for presentation to the Nebraska Public Service Commission that will permit Nebraska schools and libraries to participate in the federal universal service fund telecommunications services discounts program. Libraries and schools will be eligible to receive discounts on any available telecommunications service including wiring, routers, servers, hubs, phone lines as well as monthly rates for telecommunications and Internet services.

To receive the discounts you will be required to have a comprehensive technology plan for your library or school. That plan should include the quantity, type and timetable for acquiring hardware, software training, maintenance, and other infrastructure components. You may wish to gather a representative group from your community to discuss the technology needs for your community.

If you need assistance in updating or creating a technology plan see:
