FCC Releases January Appeal Decisions

On January 31, 2018, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released several appeal decisions related to the requests for review, requests for waiver, and petitions for reconsideration of E-rate beneficiaries. The FCC dismissed 5 requests, granted 1 and denied 8 appeals on various grounds. The one successful appeal was tied to a ministerial and/or clerical error that the FCC granted. The SLD has 90 days to review the Form 471.
Denials were issued for appeals for these following issues:
  • Invoice Deadline Extension Requests
  • Late-Filed Operational Service Provider Identification Number (SPIN) Change Request
