Carriers filing in accordance with CFR Section 54.313 need to complete the Tribal reporting section of the FCC Form 481. This requirement is highlighted in the OMB-approved FCC Form 481 Instructions and is also explained in Public Notice (DA 13-1707) (released August 6, 2013). Per the Public Notice, “For 2013, ETC’s that receive high-cost support must complete FCC Form 481 to include the following for those ETC’s that serve Tribal lands, a report on Tribal government engagement pursuant to Section 54.313(a)(9).”
ETCs must continue to engage with Tribal governments and report on the steps they have taken to engage with Tribal governments each year (see Public Notice (DA 12-1165), para. 7).
