GAATN provides fiber optic connections to member agencies in order to offer expanded communication services for each of the GAATN participants.  This includes the capability for the delivery of data, voice, and video services across the entire Austin Metropolitan area. Every AISD campus is connected to the GAATN network.  The AISD Contract and Procurement Services office has been appointed the purchasing agent for GAATN. Formal GAATN solicitations come through our office and if a GAATN procurement requires Board approval, it does not go before the Austin Independent School District Board, it goes directly to the GAATN Board.

GAATN Member Agencies include:

  • Austin Independent School District
  • Austin Community College
  • Lower Colorado River Authority
  • City of Austin
  • Travis County
  • The State of Texas represented by the Department of Information Resources
  • University of Texas at Austin
