CAP
The Collaborative Aggregation Partnership (CAP) was formed in 2002 at the request of then-Lt. Governor Heineman, chair of the NITC. The charge to CAP was to find ways for the State of Nebraska and University of Nebraska to cooperate and work toward more affordable and efficient telecommunications. Since 2006, CAP has been the primary group for operational and administrative management of Network Nebraska-Education. The CAP is comprised of staff from the three state agencies empowered to purchase and provide telecommunications services: State Office of the CIO, University of Nebraska Computing Services Network, and the Nebraska Educational Telecommunications Commission. Policy and constituent guidance is provided by staff from the Nebraska Department of Education, Public Service Commission, and the Nebraska Information Technology Commission. CAP is chaired by the State CIO.

 

NNAG
The Network Nebraska Advisory Group (NNAG) was chartered by the NITC Education Council in July 2009 to provide input to the State of Nebraska Chief Information Officer on issues related to Network Nebraska-Education. The purpose of the NNAG was to assist in crafting the vision and strategic direction for Network Nebraska-Education based on the NITC Education Council marketing survey and the needs and requests of the participating entities. It reviews membership criteria and fees, backbone and Internet demands and budgets, and proposals for future services. The NNAG is composed of eight members from K-12, eight members from higher education, and liaisons from the CAP entities responsible for the network. The NNAG elects its own co-chairs, one from K-12 and one from higher education. NNAG Website
