E-Rate Services

IBG is a Certified E-Rate Vendor

Since 2009, IBG has focused on assisting schools and other educational facilities set up their IT systems using E-Rate. E-Rate is a federal program which provides funding to Schools and Libraries for Internet connectivity and telecommunications.

As a certified E-Rate Vendor, the IBG team can make sure that a school’s IT system is procured within E-Rate guidelines and maintained according to vendor best practices. IBG can even assist with funding through bridge financing, short-term leasing and rentals until E-Rate funding is awarded. IBG is well-versed in all aspects of E-rate compliance from bidding to maintenance. This will allow any school/entity to be prepared for any potential USAC audit. IBG also provides customized IT solutions and support for non-E-Rate based needs.

  • Network Design
  • IT Planning (3-5 years)
