This is a reminder of the upcoming E-Rate filing dates/deadlines:
February 26th – Extended invoice deadline for FY 2017 recurring services.
February 27th – Last day to file a FY2019 Form 470 to meet the minimum 28-day posting requirement prior to the close of the Form 471 application window.
March 27th – FY2019 Form 471 Application deadline. Window closes at 11:59 p.m. EST.
Also, if you were unable to update your entity information such as student counts, and NSLP data prior to the close of the Admin window, provide the information in the narrative of each funding request on the Form 471. After you submit the application, follow up with a RAL correction in EPC to make the necessary corrections on your form. To access the RAL, search for the Form 471 at the bottom of the Landing Page under “FCC Forms and Post-Commitment Requests”. Click on the application number, and then “Related Actions” on the “Summary” page. From the menu, click on “Submit Modification Request (RAL)”. From there, you can choose what portion of the form you would like to correct.
If you have questions, or need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
