    Consortium

    A consortium is a group of E-rate eligible entities that seeks competitive bids or E-rate funding for eligible services on behalf of its members. Schools and/or libraries can form consortia for the purposes of the E-rate Program to aggregate demand in order to lower prices and promote more efficient use of shared facilities. Willamette ESD files an application on behalf of districts as a consortium to provide internet access.
