About MiCTA <ul><li>&quot;The purpose of MiCTA shall be to identify and resolve common voice, data and video issues and problems; to provide a clearinghouse of information relative to these technologies; to gain information on new products and services; to improve the level of competency and enhance the professional status of the member administrators; to influence the development of voice, data and video services to members at reduced costs and improved quality; to participate in governmental and regulatory proceedings affecting technology issues.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>MiCTA is . . . </li></ul><ul><li>An association of educational, governmental and nonprofit entities </li></ul><ul><li>An aggregator of demand for essential products and services </li></ul><ul><li>A provider of helpful services to our membership </li></ul><ul><li>A clearinghouse of information for our membership </li></ul><ul><li>What does MiCTA stand for? MiCTA originally formed in 1982 as a group of telecommunications directors who gathered regularly for information sharing. In 1988, a special meeting of the approximately 15 members was held to discuss aggregating demand for telecommunication services. This gathering led to MiCTA's first RFP and endorsement in 1989. AT&T was endorsed as the long distance carrier, and through the agreement with MiCTA, AT&T was able to offer pricing which saved members, in some cases, up to 85% on their long distance charges! Since that point, MiCTA has grown to be a national entity comprised of members from Higher Education, Healthcare, Libraries, K-12, Government bodies and other non-profit groups. MiCTA has continued to focus on quality service and products at outstanding prices for its membership in the areas of voice, data and video. The continuing growth of MiCTA offers greater volume to the membership as a whole, and vendors are responding with increasingly better offers every year! If you are a non-profit group or consortia and would like to learn more about the most favored pricing MiCTA members enjoy, please call our corporate office at (888) 964-2227. </li></ul>
