MiCTA was originally formed as the Michigan Collegiate Telecommunications Association in 1982. By 1989, MiCTA had issued its first RFP and successfully negotiated significant discounts for its members on valuable telecommunications services. MiCTA's membership and its purchasing programs have expanded. Currently, MiCTA is headquartered in Saginaw, MI and serves thousands of members nationwide. MiCTA focuses on providing quality products and services to its members at outstanding discounts. MiCTA's growth enables its members to access better volume pricing, additional purchasing programs and a growing number of highly desirable vendors.
