Pai’s Response on E-rate Concerns

On April 7, 2019, FCC Chairman Pai responded to Senators Markey (D-MA) and Sullivan (R-AK) regarding their concerns about transitioning the USAC contractor that provides the compliance reviews for all the E-rate applications. Chairman Pai stated that the “…FCC's Wireline Competition Bureau and Office of the Managing Director staff have exercised close oversight of USAC's transition activities, including regular meetings with USAC staff to discuss and monitor the steps taken on operations, information technology, staffing, and stakeholder outreach…”  Chairman Pai also expects USAC to process more than 95% of the E-rate applications by September 1, 2019.
