Coquille Indian Tribe

by Jan 19, 2017Native American Tribes


NIS performed an in-depth analysis of the Tribe’s entire IT organization to address their day-to-day application of technology. This assessment culminated in delivery of a report to the Tribal management and Tribal council with recommendations concerning best practices, security standards, staffing levels, and organizational structure.

NIS made a number of recommendations with general timelines to help set priorities. The timelines were intended to assist in prioritizing resources, not to serve as firm project schedules. At the request of Tribe IT management, NIS also provided some very broad ballpark cost ranges for some of the recommended next steps. These estimates served as starting points for budgetary prioritization and consideration by the Tribe’s management going forward.


"NIS is a passionate team of professionals that we consider more as a partner in our work, than just a vendor. After working with NIS for more than a decade, I would highly recommend their expertise in many areas from network infrastructure and wireless projects to upgrading our Data Center to current standards.  We have hired NIS for various projects and have found that from planning to integrating, their experience and expertise complements our internal staff to deliver high-value services to our school district, every time."

"The background and knowledge they can bring to the table, especially when it comes to working in the field of education with network telecommunications, is far superior to any other consulting company I have worked with."
Karl Grandlund Jr., Beaverton School District 
"NIS is more than a consultant the college hires to assist with various projects. They have become a partner who understands Portland Community College and participates with the best interest of PCC in mind."
"When we started exploring a possible purchase of VoIP systems, we found the process and information to be very overwhelming. We cannot thank you enough for the assistance of NIS, and the work of Mike and Diane, in particular, in helping us navigate these complicated waters."
Janice R. Morgan, Executive Director,  Legal Aid Services of Oregon
