The FCC Form 472 is used by an applicant (also known as the billed entity) to seek reimbursement for the discounts on services paid in full. After receiving an invoice from the service provider, together with an FCC Form 472, USAC is able to verify the eligible service and approved amounts that should be reimbursed and can make the appropriate payment to the applicant. The FCC Form 472 is also used to ensure that each service provider has provided discounted services within the ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 current funding year and that invoices submitted from service providers for the costs of discounted eligible services do not exceed the amount that has been approved. The FCC Form 473 is used to verify that the service provider is eligible to participate in the schools and libraries universal service support program (ERate program) and to confirm that the invoice forms submitted by the service provider are in compliance with the Federal Communications Commission’s E-Rate program rules. The FCC Form 473 is also used by USAC to assure that the dollars paid out by the universal service fund go to eligible providers. The FCC Form 474 is used by an eligible service provider to seek payment for the discounted costs of services it provided to applicants (or billed entities) for eligible services. After receiving an invoice from the service provider, together with an FCC Form 474, USAC is able to verify that the eligible and approved amounts can be paid. The FCC Form 474 is also used to ensure that each service provider has provided discounted services within the current funding year for which it submits an invoice to USAC and that invoices submitted from service providers for the costs of discounted eligible services do not exceed the amount that has been approved. All of the requirements contained in this information collection are necessary to implement the Congressional mandate for the E-Rate program and reimbursement process.
