04/30/2006 - VPnet Seeking FY2007 Federal Appropriation Request

VPnet is pursuing a $500,000 federal appropriation request for FY2007. Application packages have been submitted to the offices of Congresswoman McMorris and Senator Murray with the Washington delegation, as well as Senator Craig, and Congressman Simpson with the Idaho delegation.

VPnet pursued a similar request for FY2006, but was not awarded the appropriation. However, with strong support being received from the Washington and Idaho delegations, as well as with the lobbying support from Avista Corporation, VPnet hopes to successfully receive an appropriation for FY2007. Additionally, VPnet members have been encouraged to submit letters to their respective delegates reinforcing the importance and value of VPnet for their research and education activities.

If successful, VPnet plans to use the appropriation in the following manner:
Upgrade the VPnet network infrastructure to provide members with greater security, redundancy and bandwidth guarantees to support their utilization of VPnet.
Upgrade VPnet to provide gigabit Ethernet bandwidth across the entire network, delivering VPnetís high-speed capabilities to its members.
Support VPnet ancillary applications and tools that provide value-added services to its members. Solutions such as video conferencing tools, content archive servers, and others have been identified as providing additional value to VPnet members, thus increasing utilization and collaborative efficiencies across the consortium.
