The Technology Committee serves as a resource for aggregating telecommunication services to achieve discounted rates by volume. These services include long distance, wireless/mobility, and other data services. The Committee also seeks out additional technology savings opportunities. Examples include agreements with Dell for computer equipment discounts and with Sit-On-It Seating for chairs.
In 2015, the Technology Committee is identifying the telephone systems being used by each OCOA member to determine if an opportunity exists to learn about additional system capabilities from each other. As with every OCOA committee, by coming together as a consortium of several states, the group qualifies for discounted fees and associated administrative cost. This committee meets twice per year in conjunction with One Calls of America’s annual spring and fall meetings.
