Block 2: Early Filing Information and CIPA Waiver Request

6a. Early Filing

CHECK THE BOX BELOW IF THE FRNS ON THIS FCC FORM 486 ARE FOR SERVICES STARTING ON OR

BEFORE JULY 31 OF THE FUNDING YEAR.

The Funding Requests listed in Block 3 have been approved by USAC as shown in my Funding

Commitment Decision Letter (FCDL). I have confirmed with the service provider(s) featured in

those Funding Requests that these services will start on or before July 31 of the Funding Year.

Remember: Early filing using Item 6a is an option if and ONLY if services will start within the

month of July of the relevant Funding Year, all relevant certifications in Block 4 can be

accurately made, and the FCC Form 486 is postmarked on or before July 31 of the Funding

Year.

6b. CIPA Waiver

CHECK THE BOX BELOW IF YOU ARE REQUESTING A WAIVER OF CIPA REQUIREMENTS FOR THE

SECOND FUNDING YEAR IN WHICH YOU HAVE APPLIED FOR DISCOUNTS IF YOU AS THE BILLED

ENTITY ARE THE ADMINISTRATIVE AUTHORITY.

I am providing notification that, as of the date of the start of discounted services, I am unable to

make the certifications required by the Children’s Internet Protection Act, as codified at 47 U.S.C. §

254(h) and (l), because my state or local procurement rules or regulations or competitive bidding

requirements prevent the making of the certification(s) otherwise required. I certify that the

schools or libraries represented in the Funding Request Number(s) on this FCC Form 486 will be

brought into compliance with the CIPA requirements before the start of the Third Funding Year in

which they apply for discounts.

(For Libraries for Funding Year 2004: You may also request this waiver for FY2004 if you as the

Billed Entity are the Administrative Authority for the library(ies) represented on this FCC Form 486.

By checking this box, you are certifying that the library(ies) represented in the Funding Request

Number(s) on this FCC Form 486 will be brought into compliance with the CIPA requirements

before the start of Funding Year 2005.)

8. I certify that, if required by program rules, the entity(ies) receiving discounted services as indicated on this

FCC Form 486 are covered by technology plan(s) that have been approved by a state or other authorized body

(i.e., a USAC-certified technology plan approver) prior to the commencement of service and that cover all 12

months of the funding year. Provide the name(s) of the organization(s) that approved a technology plan for any

eligible entity that is receiving services covered under this FCC Form 486 or, if EVERY FRN listed in this FCC

all or some of the eligible entities identified in the FCC Form 471 application(s) cited above. I certify that there are

signed contracts covering all of the services listed on this FCC Form 486 except for those services provided

under tariff or on a month-to-month basis. I certify that I am authorized to submit this receipt of service

confirmation on behalf of the above-named Billed Entity; that I have examined this request; and that, to the best of

my knowledge, information, and belief, all statements of fact contained herein are true.

10. I understand that the discount level used for shared services is conditional, for future years, upon ensuring

that the most disadvantaged schools and libraries that are treated as sharing in the services receive an

appropriate share of benefits from those services. I recognize that I may be audited pursuant to this application

and will retain for five years (or whatever retention period is required by the rules in effect at the time of this

certification) any and all records, including FCC Forms 479 where required, that I rely upon to complete this form

and, if audited, will make such records available to the Administrator.

NOTES FOR COMPLETING THE CERTIFICATIONS IN ITEM 11: A Billed Entity who is the Administrative

Authority must check Item 11a or 11b or 11c. Check only ONE item. If the Billed Entity is not the

Authorities must check Item 11d or 11e. A Billed Entity who represents one or more Administrative

Authorities in Funding Years after Funding Year 2001 and who checks Item 11d must check Item 11f or 11g.

See the FCC Form 486 Instructions for Item 11, "Special Notes for Billed Entities Who Represent One or

11. FOR A BILLED ENTITY WHO IS THE ADMINISTRATIVE AUTHORITY:

I certify that as of the date of the start of discounted services:

a. the recipient(s) of service represented in the Funding Request Number(s) on this Form 486 has (have)

complied with the requirements of the Children's Internet Protection Act, as codified at 47 U.S.C. § 254(h)

and (l).

service represented in the Funding Request Number(s) on this Form 486:

(FOR SCHOOLS and FOR LIBRARIES IN THE FIRST FUNDING YEAR FOR PURPOSES OF CIPA) is (are)

undertaking such actions, including any necessary procurement procedures, to comply with the

requirements of CIPA for the next funding year, but has (have) not completed all requirements of CIPA for

this funding year.

(FOR FUNDING YEAR 2003 ONLY: FOR LIBRARIES IN THE SECOND OR THIRD FUNDING YEAR FOR

PURPOSES OF CIPA) is (are) in compliance with the requirements of CIPA under 47 U.S.C. § 254(l) and

undertaking such actions, including any necessary procurement procedures, to comply with the

c. the Children's Internet Protection Act, as codified at 47 U.S.C. § 254(h) and (l), does not apply because the

discount services only for telecommunications services.

FOR A BILLED ENTITY WHO REPRESENTS ONE OR MORE ADMINISTRATIVE AUTHORITIES:

d. I certify as the Billed Entity for the consortium that I have collected duly completed and signed FCC Forms

479 from all eligible members of the consortium.

e. I certify as the Billed Entity for the consortium that the only services that have been approved for discounts

under the universal service support mechanism on behalf of eligible members of the consortium are

telecommunications services, and therefore the requirements of the Children's Internet Protection Act, as

codified at 47 U.S.C. § 254(h) and (l), do not apply.

For Funding Years after Funding Year 2001: If you checked Item 11d above, check ONE of the boxes below:

f. I certify that some or all of the eligible consortium members checked FCC Form 479 Item 6d to seek a CIPA

Waiver, and upon request from the Administrator I can provide this information; OR

g. I certify that no eligible consortium members checked FCC Form 479 Item 6d to seek a CIPA Waiver.

The certification language above is not intended to fully set forth or explain all the requirements of the statute.
