2/15/12 Marana Unified School District, Marana, AZ: The Division denies appeals of USAC E-rate decisions filed by the Marana Unified School District (Marana) and its service provider, Trillion Partners, Inc. (Trillion), rescinding Marana’s funding commitments for funding years 2006-2010. Specifically, USAC rescinded funding for 12 of Marana’s funding requests as part of its funding year 2006, 2007, and 2008 applications and sought recovery for funding already disbursed for funding years 2007 and 2008 on the ground that Marana violated the Commission’s competitive bidding requirements. For the same reasons, USAC also denied funding for nine of Marana’s funding requests as part of its funding year 2009 and 2010 applications. Upon review of the record, we find that Marana violated the Commission’s competitive bidding requirements. We therefore deny Marana’s and Trillion’s appeals and affirm USAC’s decisions. We direct USAC to continue recovery actions against Marana and its service provider, Trillion, consistent with the order. DA 12-196
