After you file and certify an FCC Form 471 within the filing window, Program Integrity Assurance (PIA) reviewers at USAC check the information on your form for completeness and accuracy and may have additional questions for you to answer. It’s important to remember you have done nothing wrong, this review is all a part of the wonderful E-Rate process. Checks and balances are important to ensure that all participants are following the same guidance and standards.
This review process can cause E-Rate coordinators effort and stress. It’s important to remain calm and get organized in order to prepare for the impending review. This webinar will cover some organizing tips, examples of questions and responses and contact information of individuals who are here to help districts answer USAC questions when the time comes.
