LXNY Schools and Libraries Project

Board of Education of the City of New York

The Board of Education has an ambitious plan to provide computer and Internet resources to its population. On April 12, 2000, they presented a formal plan, which has since been changed. In September 2000 they replaced the Cyberspace Taskforce with the Committee on Technology, with a similar plan.
On January 24, 2001 a formal RFP (1B548) was issued. The proposal was due on 1 May.
