Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 233 / Monday, December 5, 2016 / Notices (CVAA) added section 719 to the Communications Act of 1934, as amended (the Act). Public Law 111–260, 124 Stat. 2751 (2010); Public Law 111– 265, 124 Stat. 2795 (2010) (making technical corrections); 47 U.S.C. 620. Section 719 of the Act requires the Commission to establish rules that define as eligible for up to $10,000,000 of support annually from the Interstate Telecommunications Relay Service Fund (TRS Fund) those programs that are approved by the Commission for the distribution of specialized customer premises equipment designed to make telecommunications service, Internet access service, and advanced communications, including interexchange services and advanced telecommunications and information services, accessible by low-income individuals who are deaf-blind. 47 U.S.C. 620(a), (c). Accordingly, on April 6, 2011, the Commission released a Report and Order, document FCC 11– 56, adopting rules to establish the National Deaf-Blind Equipment Distribution Program (NDBEDP) as a pilot program. See 47 CFR 64.610(a) through (k). The FCC’s Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau (CGB or Bureau) launched the pilot program on July 1, 2012. In an Order released on May 27, 2016, document FCC 11–69, the Commission extended the pilot program to June 30, 2017, at which time distributing equipment and providing related services under the pilot program will cease. On August 5, 2016, the Commission released a Report and Order, document FCC 16–101, adopting rules to establish the NDBEDP, also known as ‘‘iCanConnect,’’ as a permanent program. See 47 CFR 64.6201 through 64.6219. In document FCC 16–101, the Commission clarified that the pilot program will not terminate until after all reports have been submitted, all payments and adjustments have been made, and all wind-down activities have been completed, and no issues with regard to the NDBEDP pilot program remain pending. Information collections related to NDBEDP pilot program activities are included in OMB Control Number 3060–1146, Implementation of the Twenty-first Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010, Section 105, Relay Services for Deaf-Blind Individuals, CG Docket No. 10–210, which will expire June 30, 2018. Rules for the NDBEDP permanent program that are subject to the PRA will become effective on the date specified in a notice published in the Federal Register announcing OMB approval. At that time, in accordance with document VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:12 Dec 02, 2016 Jkt 241001 16–101, the Bureau will announce the timing of the 60-day period for new and incumbent entities to apply for certification to participate in the permanent NDBEDP. To minimize any disruption of service in the transition between the pilot program and the permanent program, the Bureau will announce its selection of the entities certified to participate in the NDBEDP permanent program as soon as possible, but certifications to participate in the NDBEDP permanent program will not become effective before July 1, 2017. Because the information collection burdens related to NDBEDP pilot program activities overlap in time with the information collection burdens related to NDBEDP permanent program activities, the Commission is seeking approval for a new collection for the information burdens associated with the permanent NDBEDP. In document FCC 16–101, the Commission adopted rules requiring the following: (a) Entities must apply to the Commission for certification to receive reimbursement from the TRS Fund for NDBEDP activities. (b) A program wishing to relinquish its certification before its certification expires must provide written notice of its intent to do so. (c) Certified programs must disclose to the Commission actual or potential conflicts of interest. (d) Certified programs must notify the Commission of any substantive change that bears directly on its ability to meet the qualifications necessary for certification. (e) A certified entity may present written arguments and any relevant documentation as to why suspension or revocation of certification is not warranted. (f) When a new entity is certified as a state’s program, the previously certified entity must take certain actions to complete the transition to the new entity. (g) Certified programs must require an applicant to provide verification that the applicant is deaf-blind. (h) Certified programs must require an applicant to provide verification that the applicant meets the income eligibility requirement. (i) Certified programs must re-verify the income and disability eligibility of an equipment recipient under certain circumstances. (j) Certified programs must permit the transfer of an equipment recipient’s account when the recipient relocates to another state. PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 87559 (k) Certified programs must include an attestation on consumer application forms. (l) Certified programs must conduct annual audits and submit to Commission-directed audits. (m) Certified programs must document compliance with NDBEDP requirements, provide such documentation to the Commission upon request, and retain such records for at least five years. (n) Certified programs must submit reimbursement claims as instructed by the TRS Fund Administrator, and supplemental information and documentation as requested. In addition, the entity selected to conduct national outreach will submit claims for reimbursement on a quarterly basis. (o) Certified programs must submit reports every six months as instructed by the NDBEDP Administrator. In addition, the entity selected to conduct national outreach will submit an annual report. (p) Informal and formal complaints may be filed against NEDBEDP certified programs, and the Commission may conduct such inquiries and hold such proceedings as it may deem necessary. (q) Certified programs must include the NDBEDP whistleblower protections in appropriate publications. Federal Communications Commission. Gloria J.
