Regulatory Primer: Universal Service Fund (USF) and USAC Appeals Primer on Processes and Risks


Our law firm has been called upon to represent numerous clients with USF contributor audits initiated by USAC, and with few exceptions, the resulting appeals to the FCC of adverse USAC audit decisions. 

Our collective experience representing clients BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER such USAC audits has shed tremendous amounts of light onto what was, heretofore, a rather opaque, fluid and uncertain process.

In the interests of sharing knowledge and educating clients about the FCC Form 499 revenue reporting, USAC audit, and FCC appeals processes, we have reflected on our experiences and compiled Universal Service Fund (USF) and USAC Appeals Primer on Processes and Risks.
