Please join us on March 10, 2020 for Kelley Drye’s annual webinar discussing the state of the federal Universal Service Fund. This webinar, back for its 11th year, provides an in-depth look at all four USF programs and the USF contribution mechanism, highlighting major developments in the last year and trends for the upcoming year. In addition, this year, the program will discuss the FCC’s proposal to overhaul its suspension and debarment process and we will highlight strategies participants can employ to best protect themselves from negative consequences upon discovery of an error or compliance issue. This webinar supplements the knowledge our clients gain from the monthly USF Tracker to provide context and analysis of the issues you need to know.
The 11th Annual Update will address the following, among other topics:
• The Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF);
• Significant modifications to the Rural Healthcare and Lifeline programs;
• The proposal by the state members of the Joint Board to modify the contributions mechanism; and
• The FCC’s proposed new suspension and debarment rules.
This unique educational event should be attended by anyone involved in the federal USF programs. Regardless of how you participate in the Federal USF programs today, this webinar will provide new insights and recommendations for making the most of this $9 billion program.
