E-rate Forms - Information and Deadlines!

 

Just to let everyone know that you should be doing your E-rate forms for telephone service and ATM.

Submit Forms online to USAC/SLD at:  http://www.sl.universalservice.org/menu.asp <http://www.sl.universalservice.org/menu.asp> 

 

FORM 486

For the Funding Year July 1, 2008 - June 30, 2009 

Schools and libraries should be filling out the Form 486.

Some Form 486 tips and information:

§         For most of you the deadline will be October 28, 2008. 

§         If you received a Funding Commitment Decision Letter (FCDL) after July 1, the deadline will be 120 days after the date of your FCDL.

This year those of you that had Verizon designated on your Form 471 will need to use the new Fairpoint SPIN number.  You should have received a letter from Fairpoint earlier this month with the details.

USAC/SLD made a Global SPIN change so even though your FCDLs say "Verizon" and have the Verizon SPIN the forms have been changed in USAC's database to Fairpoint.  So to successfully submit the Form 486 you will need to use the new Fairpoint SPIN number (143032501).

 

 

FORM 472

For the Funding Year July 1, 2007 - June 30, 2008 

Schools and libraries should be filling out the Form 472.

Some Form 472 tips and information:

§         For most of you the deadline will be October 28, 2008.

§         You must have paid your last bill.  All services must be paid for before requesting reimbursement. 

We encourage you to use the online Form when possible. 

Please check with your phone company to make sure they are processing the Form 472 (BEAR) online.

Fairpoint, Verizon, AT&T all are using the online system.  Some smaller Maine companies have not yet integrated the online system.  Oxford Networks still requires the Form 472 to be faxed.  If you file online and your vendor doesn't use the online system your Form 472 won't get processed and you will lose your money.

 

Important note for ATM and  phone customers who were Verizon customers and have been changed to Fairpoint.

*	The Form 472 should be submitted to Verizon and will be processed by Verizon for funding year July 1, 2007 - June 2008.
*	This was an agreement reached between Fairpoint and Verizon.  
*	Fairpoint will process all Funding year 2008.

 

If you need any assistance please call or email your State E-rate Coordinator.
