In a recent order, the Federal Communications Commission (“Commission”) affirmed five decisions by the Universal Service Administrative Company (“USAC”) to deny funding to applicants that had submitted substantive changes to their funding requests months after the window had closed. The applicants had attempted to amend their FCC Forms 471 up to eight months after the deadline to either (i) modify which entities were covered on their Forms 471 in order to raise their applicable discount levels or (ii) request additional services. The Commission found that, in both instances, allowing substantive changes months after the funding window closed would be contrary to the public interest.

Details of applicants included in full article.
