This tool has been created by the Technology Readiness Infrastructure Grant (TRIG) E-rate Activity to facilitate the competitive bidding processes necessary to fulfill E-rate rules and regulations. Please click here for more information on this process.
As a goal of the TRIG E-rate Activity, (to simplify and assure the competitive bidding process rules are followed), we are working to meet the needs of the E-rate applicants in the State of Michigan. In addition, we have constructed the tool to facilitate applicant use of our statewide RFP bid efforts, particularly in regards to Internet Access and broadband connectivity.
These bid results are available automatically as bids to be evaluated when the the E-rate Statewide Form 470 is selected within the tool. This will reduce the effort of the applicant to include these bid results in the local vendor selection process.
