If an applicant or service provider has missed the deadline for submitting an invoice – FCC Form 472 (BEAR Form) or FCC Form 474 (SPI Form) – the applicant or service provider must request an extension of the deadline before a new invoice can be submitted.
USAC updates the FRN Extension Table after an invoice deadline extension request has been successfully processed. The extended deadline will appear in the far right-hand column of the search results.
To request an invoice deadline extension, send a letter to USAC detailing your request and include the following information:
Requests may be filed by email, fax, or mail. Requests submitted by email will be considered filed on a business day if they are received by USAC at any time up to 12:00 AM (midnight) ET. Requests received after that time will be considered received on the next business day. Similarly, fax transmissions will be considered filed on a business day if the complete transmission is received by any time up to 12:00 AM (midnight) ET.
To submit a request using Submit a Question, choose “Invoice Deadline Extension Request” from the Topic Inquiry menu and “Other” from the Specific Inquiry menu. You can either type your request in the freeform text box or indicate that you would like to submit an attachment containing your request. USAC will automatically reply to incoming emails to confirm receipt.
Requests filed by fax must be faxed to (973) 599-6526. The fax transmission should include a cover sheet listing contact name, phone number and, if available, an email address.
