USAC Publishes Semi-Annual Audit Report

On March 31, 2021, the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) submitted their Semi-Annual Audit Recovery Report to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). As required by the FCC’s Fifth Report and Order, USAC must submit a semi-annual report to the FCC summarizing the status of all outstanding E-rate audit findings. The report details the process that USAC utilizes to recover improperly disbursed funds. It also provides a summary of audits that may lead to the recovery of previously committed funds.

As of February 28, 2021, USAC had conducted 2,306 audits and recovered $48M. There was one “beneficiary audit older than six months with a potential recovery of $11,209,646 for which a Notification Letter has not been issued.”

The audit report may be found here, and summary of audit activity by Funding Year here.
