Schools and libraries oppose proposed mandatory national bidding portal for E-rate as counterproductive

The Schools, Health & Libraries Broadband Coalition, the State E-rate Coordinators’ Alliance, and the Consortium for School Networking have written a letter to the Federal Communications Commission in opposition to a proposed mandatory E-rate national bidding portal.

As noted in the letter, the portal is unnecessary and would be ineffective in mitigating fraud risk in the E-rate program.
