Chief Agency Telecommunications Representative Information

Each state government agency, such as state departments, boards and commissions, are required to designate a single Chief Agency Telecommunications Representative (CATR). The CATR assists the Office of Technology Services Statewide Telecommunications and Networking Division (STND) to:

  • Manage that agency's telecommunications and network services
  • Provide a single point of contact to STND on telecommunications-related matters

If appropriate, the CATR can appoint one or more Agency Telecommunications Representatives (ATR) to assist in the day-to-day telecommunications activities of their agency. Local government agencies are encouraged to designate CATRs and ATRs so they will receive important updates affecting their telecommunications and networking services, such as changes to Master Service Agreements like CALNET and Telecommunications Consulting.
