The State E-rate Coordinators’ Alliance (SECA) submitted comments to the FCC in support of Funds For Learning’s ex parte letter requesting relief for applicants that filed a Form 470 application for an Internet option that did not also include transport.  SECA mentioned that “…FFL’s analysis and ex parte notice provide data from FY 2019 that shows that applicants unfortunately selected the wrong Internet service option on their Form 470 despite their best efforts to comply with the administrator’s guidance.
