The cause of this problem is a drop in the student count in our middle school. I discussed this with Mai this morning to find an expeditious way of adjusting the overage. After describing the limitations of what can be changed in the application, we agreed that the best way to move forward was to reduce the amount of cost of liscensing for the Meraki cloud devices in the middle school by the required amount. Response below:
In order to expedite approval of our eRate application, please reduce the DNI proposal by the required amount of $1659.63 on the line item in the Middle School for "LIC-MX220-48LP_5YR" from the original amount of $1800 to $140.37 with the understanding that the school will have to fund the difference.
