Each year, OPLIN issues a statewide, competitive bidding opportunity for broadband vendors to provide library branch circuits. OPLIN cannot pay for the branch circuits, but by releasing a statewide RFP through the E-rate system, we've found that libraries get better pricing and terms than when they act on their own. Libraries could then locally request E-rate discounts against the bids received in the statewide call for proposals. You can view a short video explanation for more information.

To participate, please fill out and submit the form below by November 1, 2023, for each branch you want to include in the omnibus RFP.
