USAC Service Provider Webinar Notes – January 2015

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 January 7th, 2015 service provider webinar include:

December 2014 E-rate Commitments

Invoicing Update: Payments for the month of December totaled $148.6 million against $188.7 million in requests. USAC processed invoices for 1310 service providers, and 96% of the invoices were processed within 30 days.

Top Denial Reasons:

  • Invoice Deadline Violation
  • Total Commitment Paid
  • Duplicate Invoice
  • Invalid Form 471 or FRN
  • Billed Outside of Funding Year

Invoice Reminders:

The invoice deadline for FY 2012 and FY 2013 non-recurring services is January 28, 2015.

The FY 2015 Form 473 (Service Provider Annual Certification) will be available the week of January 12.
