About the Schools and Libraries Program
Certified Technology Plan Approver Locator
The Technology Plan Approver Locator is a tool designed to match up applicants with USAC-certified Technology Plan Approvers. Applicants who are seeking support for services other than basic local and/or long distance telephone service (wireline or wireless) must prepare technology plans and have those plans approved by a USAC-certified Technology Plan Approver.
To find an approver appropriate for your entity type, please select your state and entity type below. After making your selection, click the "Search" button, and a results list will be generated based on the criteria you selected. The results list will provide you with contact information for all organizations fitting your criteria that are actively participating as USAC-certified Technology Plan Approvers. It is important to note that some of the organizations listed will only approve Technology Plans for their member schools or for a specific type of school.
Please be advised that some of the approvers listed may charge a fee for their services. You are encouraged to check with the approver for information on restrictions, fees, charges, and the like, before requesting review of your Technology Plan.
In the event you are unable to locate a USAC-certified Technology Plan Approver - or if the approver you would like to use is not listed in the tool - please contact USAC via email or via fax at (202) 776-0080. Please be sure to provide us with your Billed Entity Number, the state in which your school or library is located, and your contact information, including email, telephone number and fax number if available. Please keep in mind that you should not submit your plan to an approver who is not certified to approve your particular entity’s plan. For example, if you are a library, then you should not submit your plan to a USAC-certified Technology Plan Approver who is only certified to approve school technology plans. As another example, if a USAC-certified Technology Plan Approver is only certified to approve technology plans in California, you should not submit your plan to them if your school or library is in another state. Both of the examples above represent Program rule violations that could result in your funding being reduced or denied in full.
Please be aware that USAC will always ensure that you have access to a USAC-certified Technology Plan Approver so that your technology plan can be reviewed and approved for purposes of participation in the E-Rate Program.
