FY 2016, Wave 23 E-rate Funding Commitments
November 30, 2016
USAC has released FY 2016, Wave 23 E-rate funding commitments, which included 5 applicants, committing $282,882. Wave 23 included 6 Category 2 FRNs, worth $205,424. A list of the funded applicants is below and a more detailed analysis of this funding wave is attached. If you are included on this list, he next step is to log into EPC to “generate” your FCDL (see helpful FCDL Guide at http://e-ratepa.org/?p=13411), then file the Form 486 in EPC (see Form 486 Guide at http://e-ratepa.org/?p=13591), and let your vendors know if you want discounted bills. No paper FCDLs are being mailed for FY 2016.
If you were funded for Category 2, be sure to review the Category 2 E-rate Purchasing Guide http://e-ratepa.org/?p=13311 for information on purchase orders, asset inventories, equipment substitutions and equipment transfers, etc.
Why are the funding commitments being released so slowly this year? Like we’ve experienced in each step of the new EPC Portal, the PIA review module is creating backlogs during the review stage. Please be sure to respond promptly to the PIA inquiries as soon as you receive the e-mail notice (see helpful PIA Review Guide at http://e-ratepa.org/?p=13451) so you can ensure you’re in an upcoming wave. A funding wave will be released each week until all funds are exhausted.
