In addition to TAP projects in a number of schools and districts nationwide, the National Institute for Excellence in Teaching (NIET) has entered into state partnerships with Louisiana, South Carolina, Texas and Indiana. NIET also participates in a university partnership with Arizona State University. In these locations, the TAP system is being administered and supported by state or university-level personnel. NIET recognizes these state teams as authorized providers of the TAP system.
