On behalf of NISC’s Board of Directors and employees, we encourage you to review NISC’s 2022-2023 Annual Report, which showcases some of the highlights from the past fiscal year. For a complete listing of the 2022-2023 fiscal year’s accomplishments, please review the timeline below.

Our Members are at the center of everything we do. Our mission at NISC is to provide innovative technology solutions and world-class support to our Members, through a strong partnership and shared set of values. Members serve on our Board of Directors, make up our numerous and active Member Advisory Committees and are true partners in the solution development, implementation process and overall future vison for our technology cooperative.

Thanks to the commitment of our employees and support of our Members, we were able to achieve some incredible things this year.

Delivering iVUE Connect is the primary focus. We made great progress this past year. We added many features and improvements on a strong, unified product built for electric and broadband utilities and many other services.

In addition to our focus on iVUE Connect, we have placed a great emphasis on creating and improving tools for you to serve and engage with your end consumers and subscribers, not only bringing efficiency to the process, but allowing you to serve more effectively. In addition to our product focus, 2022-2023 has been a year of partner focus as well. By partnering with other leaders in the industry, we are stronger together. It is all about leveraging strengths to benefit our Members.

This year we welcomed 30 new Members, which is a testament to the industry-leading quality and strength of our technology solutions and the responsive service provided by our team. Growing our Membership allows us to keep costs stable through economies of scale. We couldn’t be more grateful for each organization that trusts us to be their technology partner.

Our greatest strength is our team of talented and dedicated employees. We have had a busy and successful year in not only recruiting and training new employees, but also in providing ongoing learning and development opportunities for our existing employees. It is our continual mission to improve our skills and capabilities as we look for ways to better serve you.

We are thankful for your partnership and continued support and trust that allows NISC to be in a strong position as we navigate new challenges and opportunities. We have many more exciting projects underway for the year ahead, and we look forward to another year of solving challenges – together.

The management of the company is responsible for the integrity of its financial statements. These statements have been prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles and include the best estimates and judgments of management. The company maintains a system of internal accounting controls designed to provide reasonable assurance that assets are safeguarded against loss or unauthorized use, and that transactions are executed in accordance with management’s authorization and recorded and summarized properly.

Our independent auditors have audited the company’s financial statements. The audit is conducted in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, which require a review of the internal accounting controls and tests of accounting procedures to the extent necessary for the purpose of their audit.


To ensure complete independence, the Board of Directors selects the independent auditors and is presented with the full audit report at their regular Board meeting in September of each year.
