Historically, USAC’s Schools and Libraries Division has hosted monthly service provider conference calls, providing information and guidance for vendors participating in the E-rate program. In an effort to maximize efficiency, the SLD has developed the conference call into a monthly webinar. Highlights from the December 3, 2014 service provider webinar include:
November 2014 E-rate Commitments
Invoicing Update: Payments for the month of November totaled $113.4 million against $154.9 million in requests. USAC processed invoices for 2,436 service providers, and 96% of the invoices were processed within 30 days.
Top Denial Reasons:
- Duplicate Invoice
- Invoice Deadline Violation
- Total Commitment Paid
- Billed Date Prior to Start Date
- Billed Outside the Funding Year
Invoice Reminders: The invoice deadline for FY 2012 and FY 2013 non-recurring services is January 28, 2015.
Ineligible Entities Reminder: Vendors may not invoice the SLD for services to any ineligible entity or an entity that was not included on the Form 471.
