MVECA's continued focus on responsible growth generated a 193 percent increase in the organization's annual cash carryover between fiscal years 2010 to 2017, effectively addressing budget shortfalls and eliminating the need for significant fee increases. At the same time, MVECA increased staffing levels by 163 percent; reinvested in datacenter, network, and security infrastructure; absorbed cost increases for software licensing and maintenance; and decreased the cost of managed wireless services, hosted phone solutions, and core services for schools.
"MVECA is exceptionally thankful to our clients for their continued support and proud of the work and dedication its staff has demonstrated during this time of change," said Thor Sage, Executive Director. "Everyone at MVECA understands that our transformation and growth is critical to the health of the schools, governments, and non-profit organizations we serve."
The Internet is an exceptionally powerful platform that has dramatically changed the way we do business, communicate, and educate. The need for more robust infrastructure, increased cyber-security, investments in technology support, and the procurement of modern communication tools is profound.
