Summit Ridge Group Explains Dire State of Reimbursement Program


The Summit Ridge Group, a consulting firm assisting clients in the telecom, media, and satellite sectors, filed an ex parte in regard to the FCC’s Secure and Trusted Communications Networks Reimbursement Program pointing out several critical issues, specifically lack of funding, that are forcing some Reimbursement Program participants to make contingency plans to wind down their efforts to remove, replace, and destroy their covered equipment.  Without additional funding, Summit Ridge Group argues that program participants may be forced to shut down portions of their networks as they cannot complete their rip-and-replace process.  Summit Ridge Group further argued that FCC guidance is very limited in addressing this issue and asked the FCC a series of tax and accounting questions, which currently lack clarity.
