FY 2017, Wave 26 E-rate Funding Commitments Issued

November 29, 2017

Attached: Wave 26

Congratulations to the following 7 PA schools and libraries (19 separate FRNs), committing $841,755.67.  This wave includes commitments for both Category 1 and Category 2 requests.  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, the next step is to log into EPC to “generate” your FCDL, file the Form 486, and contact your vendors to request discounted billing.  The FY 2017 Form 486 is now available and must be filed in EPC.   As with FY 2016, no paper FCDLs are being mailed for FY 2017.  On the attached spreadsheet, if column I shows a red “no” it means your service provider has not yet submitted their FY 2017 Form 473 SPAC Form.  You may wish to contact the vendor and let them know this should be filed ASAP in the vendor e-File System.

Note:  If your FRN was denied, and the reason given in Column O is that the applicant did not provide sufficient documentation, please appeal this denial and provide the documentation to support your request (usually a vendor invoice).  If you were denied for any other reason, please let me know if you have any questions about whether you should appeal or need assistance.

If you were funded for Category 2, be sure to review the Category 2 E-rate Purchasing Guide http://e-ratepa.org/?p=20471 for information on purchase orders, asset inventories, equipment substitutions and equipment transfers, etc.

If you were NOT included in the first 26 waves, it just means that your application hasn’t yet been reviewed.  Be watching for e-mail for notification that your PIA questions are available in EPC.  As soon as the questions are answered, you’ll likely be in an upcoming funding wave.  A funding wave will be released each week until all funds are exhausted.

If you have any questions, please let me know!
