See Notice to Providers for standard Bid Evaluation Criteria. Each applicant may choose to use different evaluation criteria which will be posted on the applicant's RFP.
BID AWARD NOTIFICATIONS:
Bid Award Notifications will be made by each applicant per their local procedures. USAC will send Form 471 Receipt Acknowledgement notices (RAL) online in the USAC E-Rate Productivity Center (EPC) to each service provider listed on a Form 471.
Warning- the RAL is not a funding commitment. RAL is an acknowledgement that products or services associated with the service provider's SPIN has been submitted on a FCC Form 471. If the project is conditional upon funding, do not take action on the project without a waiver from the applicant until a Funding Commitment is issued.
