1 USTTI UNITED STATES TELECOMMUNICATIONS TRAINING INSTITUTE Global Growth through Communications Sharing

2 USTTI Background The USTTI is a public-private partnership that provides tuition-free training to developing country officials and entrepreneurs who build, regulate, and maintain the communications infrastructures in their countries. Training is conducted in the US by volunteer experts from US Government and industry. The USTTI was launched in 1982 at the Nairobi ITU Plenipotentiary Conference in response to legitimate concerns of developing country officials over the widening ICT gap between developed and developing countries. The challenge was to address the urgent need for quality ICT training without increasing U.S. payment to an ITU then dominated by European monopolist interests. The answer: creating the USTTI as a reverse mini-peace Corps program where developing country ICT officials and entrepreneurs travel to the U.S. for intensive tuition-free training conducted annually by hundreds of volunteer ICT experts from U.S. industry and the federal government. 2

3 USTTI GOALS USTTI was founded on one primary goal: to aggressively SHARE U.S. communications policy, management and technological advancements with women and men who are well positioned to lead their developing countries into an open, competitive ICT market that promotes economic development and democracy building throughout the developing world. No-strings-attached training No trade shows No propaganda No quid pro quo Only requirement of USTTI graduates is to participate fully in training and then aggressively share their new found knowledge with their colleagues when they return home to their developing country. 3

4 USTTI First training year: courses 134 graduates 62 developing countries served Over USTTI s 31 year history: 1,907 courses 8,979 USTTI graduates 171 developing countries served USTTI Africa Partnership 2778 graduates since graduates since 2003 Graduate from every African country 4

5 Federal Agencies Serving on USTTI Board Since its Inception (1982)* The USTTI is a unique public-private partnership by virtue of two bipartisan acts of congress Cable Communications Policy Act of 1984 Omnibus Diplomatic Security and Antiterrorism Act of 1986 The Acts jointly authorize full Board membership for the Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Administrator of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) of the Department of Commerce, and the ranking State Department official charged with international ICT policy. Current USTTI federal Board Members FCC Chairman Thomas Wheeler NTIA Administrator Larry Strickling Ambassador Daniel Sepulveda, US Department of State CIO Director for USAID, Jerry Horton 5
