The Funding commitment decision letters are rolling in early! There are a couple of things to know before you start ordering equipment.
- The 486 must be filed, certified, and approved by USAC before you can order any equipment! A lot of our vendors will not place the order until that is certified.
- Equipment can be ordered after April 1, 2018, however you CAN NOT be invoiced for any equipment until AFTER JULY 1, 2018. We have had instances of funds being denied because of this.
- When you submit Purchase Orders please mark clearly on the PO that you want a Service Provider Invoice (SPI). That will hopefully avoid having to complete a BEAR form at a later date.
