ORDER

Adopted: May 22, 2012

Released: May 22, 2012

By the Chief, Telecommunications Access Policy Division, Wireline Competition Bureau:
1.
Consistent with precedent,1 we deny five requests from petitioners seeking review of
decisions made by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) under the E-rate program
(more formally known as the schools and libraries universal service support program).2 In each decision,
USAC found that the entities at issue were not eligible for E-rate support.3 Based on our review of the
record, we find that the five petitioners failed to show that the entities denied funding are eligible for E-
rate support.
