Good Morning E-Rate Community,Per USAC’s News Brief released this past Friday, The FCC announced an inflation factor of 2.2% for FY2019.Based on the new factor, the rounded calculations for FY2019 Category Two budgets are:
Schools = Number of students * $159.67
Libraries with an IMLS locale code of 11, 12, or 21 = Total square footage * $5.32
Libraries with other IMLS locale codes = Total square footage * $2.45
Budget floor = $9,793.04
When calculating your remaining Category 2 budget, remember that the Category 2 Budget Lookup Tool in EPC does not reflect commitments from FY2015. Also, as of last weekend, the tool has not been updated to reflect the new FY 2019 budget factors.
