The people who manage the E-rate program for their school, district, library, or consortium don't fit any single profile. According to our survey, most are administrators (43 percent) or IT coordinators (40 percent), although some are procurement officers (1 percent), accountants (7 percent), or even classroom educators (8 percent).
