Broward County Public Schools procures all of its major telecommunications goods and services through RFP 25-005N, a competitive bid contract awarded to multiple vendors in December of 2004. Two main sections of this RFP are focused on standard voice services and voice equipment.

All local and long distance services are procured on a District-wide basis by IT on behalf of the district and individual schools and departments are expressly forbidden to initiative or contract for alternative services. District administrative, support, and instructional staff members are forbidden to initiate, or contract for, ANY telephone or other service that is billed to any District-owned phone number.

This prohibition includes the use of "10-10" long distance access services. Additional information about the use of long distance service is contained in Board Policy 3201. For information about Cellular phone service, please review the materials available here.
