There are a number of actions that may be desired or required outside of the regular application process. The list below provides information on these actions. Some actions must be initiated by the applicant.
To extend the deadline for delivery and installation of non-recurring services, you or the applicant can request a service delivery extension. Generally the deadline for delivery and installation of non-recurring services is September 30 following the close of the funding year, and under some circumstances this deadline is extended automatically. If you do not receive an automatic extension, your service delivery extension request must be received or postmarked on or before the deadline for service delivery.
You can request an invoice deadline extension to extend the deadline for submitting invoices.
If you disagree with a USAC decision, you or the applicant can file an appeal with USAC or with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
If an invoice has been rejected or payment has been reduced because you made an error, you can simply submit a new invoice. If an applicant files a BEAR Form online and you do not approve it in a timely manner, the BEAR Form will age out and the applicant can file a new BEAR Form, which you should review promptly. However, if the rejection or reduction occurred for some other reason, you or the applicant can file an appeal with USAC or with the FCC.
If a school or library facility is temporarily or permanently closing, applicants can transfer equipment from that facility to another eligible entity. If it has been less than three years since the equipment was purchased, the applicant must notify USAC of the transfer.
Applicants can dispose of or trade-in obsolete equipment but no sooner than five years after the date the equipment was installed. The applicant is not required to notify USAC, but its inventory or asset register should be updated.
