FCC, NTIA Sign New MOU on Spectrum Coordination


The FCC and NTIA have released an updated Memorandum of Understanding between the agencies on spectrum coordination.  The MOU has not been updated for nearly twenty years.  The MOU establishes a stronger collaborative effort between the agencies for managing spectrum use and planning, including: (1) holding formal meetings to conduct joint spectrum planning at least quarterly; (2) holding monthly meetings between each agency’s staff to exchange information on the long-term spectrum outlook; (3) an effort to share more information, concerns, and views in the spectrum planning process; and (4) working together to develop and implement a clearer dispute resolution process.
