Budget Control Mechanism
As required by the FCC Rate of Return Reform Order, USAC is required to calculate total support available for distribution to Rate of Return carriers. In order to remain within the annual rate of return budget, USAC will apply the FCC Budget Control Mechanism methodology to reduce support for carriers subject to HCLS (including SVS) and or CAF BLS support.
Please note: These numbers are projections and are subject to change.
- The budget control mechanism impact will be applied to four months, starting with the September 2016 disbursements.
