The loss and the restitution that you owed to the ERate program resulting from the criminal offenses was $300,176.10.6 Pursuant to section 54.521(a)(4) of the Commission’s rules,7 your conviction requires the Bureau to suspend you from participating in any activities associated with or related to the schools and libraries fund mechanism, including the receipt of funds or discounted services through the schools and libraries fund mechanism, or consulting with, assisting, or advising applicants or service providers regarding the schools and libraries support mechanism.8 Your suspension becomes effective upon the earlier of your receipt of this letter or publication of notice in the Federal Register.9 Suspension is immediate pending the Bureau’s final debarment determination. In accordance with the Commission’s debarment rules, you may contest this suspension or the scope of this suspension by filing arguments in opposition to the suspension, with any relevant documentation. Your request must be received within 30 days after you receive this letter or after notice is published in the Federal Register, whichever comes first.10 Such requests, however, will not ordinarily be granted.11 The Bureau may reverse or limit the scope of suspension only upon a finding of extraordinary circumstances.12 Absent extraordinary circumstances, the Bureau will decide any request for reversal or modification of suspension within 90 days of its receipt of such request.13 Criminal Docket No. 1:07–CR–139, Information (N.D.Ga.. filed Apr. 30, 2007 and entered May 3, 2007) (‘‘ Scott and Myers Scott Information’’); Scott Plea Agreement at 1. 5 Scott and Myers Scott Information at 1–9.

Initiation of Debarment Proceedings Your guilty plea to criminal conduct in connection with the E-Rate program, in addition to serving as a basis for immediate suspension from the program, also serves as a basis for the initiation of debarment proceedings against you. Your conviction falls within the categories of causes for debarment defined in section 54.521(c) of the Commission’s rules.14 Therefore, pursuant to section 54.521(a)(4) of the Commission’s rules, your conviction requires the Bureau to commence debarment proceedings against you. As with your suspension, you may contest debarment or the scope of the proposed debarment by filing arguments and any relevant documentation within 30 calendar days of the earlier of the receipt of this letter or of publication in the Federal Register.15 Absent extraordinary circumstances, the Bureau will debar you.16 Within 90 days of receipt of any opposition to your suspension and proposed debarment, the Bureau, in the absence of extraordinary circumstances, will provide you with notice of its decision to debar.17 If the Bureau decides to debar you, its decision will become effective upon the earlier of your receipt of a debarment notice or publication of the decision in the Federal Register.18 If and when your debarment becomes effective, you will be prohibited from participating in activities associated with or related to the schools and libraries support mechanism for three years from the date of debarment.19 The Bureau may, if necessary to protect the public interest, extend the debarment period.20 Please direct any response, if by messenger or hand delivery, to Marlene H. Dortch, Secretary, Federal Communications Commission, 236 Massachusetts Avenue, NE., Suite 110, Washington, DC 20002, to the attention of Diana Lee, Attorney Advisor, Investigations and Hearings Division, 14 ‘‘Causes for suspension and debarment are the conviction of or civil judgment for attempt or commission of criminal fraud, theft, embezzlement, forgery, bribery, falsification or destruction of records, making false statements, receiving stolen property, making false claims, obstruction of justice and other fraud or criminal offense arising out of activities associated with or related to the schools and libraries support mechanism.’’ 47 CFR 54.521(c).
