The Federal Communications Commission has announced the availability of the web-based form that participants in the Mobility Fund Phase II (MF-II) challenge process must use to request access to the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) challenge process portal. Any eligible mobile service provider or government entity (state, local, or Tribal) wishing to participate in the challenge process must submit its contact information via the web-based access request form to be granted access to the USAC portal. The access request form is now available here.
The Bureaus will process submitted forms on a rolling basis and email login credentials and instructions for accessing the portal to the user(s) designated on each form. Any party wishing to receive its login credentials at the time the challenge process window opens should submit its access request form no later than March 15, 2018.
The Commission anticipates opening the challenge window one to two weeks after the registration window closes. Submission of the access request form does not represent a commitment or obligation to participate in the challenge process.
