USAC has announced that the FY 2014 Form 471 application window will open at noon EST on Thursday, Jan. 9, 2014, and close at 11:59 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, March 26, 2014. The Form 471 filing window will be open for 77 days. The last date for applicants to post a Form 470 and start the competitive bidding and procurement cycle is Feb. 26, 2014, as FCC rules dictate that Form 470 responses need to be evaluated for a minimum of 28 days. If you request Priority Two services, you will need to have a signed and dated contract by the time the Form 471 is submitted, and you also need to remember that the Item 21 Description of Services Attachment will need to be submitted by the time the Form 471 window closes.
