Due to the disastrous effects of Hurricane Sandy, USAC has extended the deadlines for Form 486 filings, as well as Funding Year 2011 recurring services invoice submissions. The new deadline for both is January 28, 2013. This extension applies to all participants in the E-Rate program; there is no need to submit individual requests.
Applicants and service providers should note that, with this extension, the invoices for FY 2011 recurring and non-recurring services are now due on the same day: January 28, 2013.
Additionally, USAC has indicated that additional time will be given to respond to Program Integrity Assurance (PIA) requests. Applicants are encouraged to contact their PIA reviewer if any inquiries are outstanding.
