ATTENTION: Important notice if you have not submitted your full claim for C-Band transition reimbursement!
On December 5, 2023, the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau released a Public Notice adopting two final reimbursement claim submission deadlines for any outstanding C-band transition-related claims. All reimbursement claims for costs incurred and paid by claimants as of December 31, 2023, including all lump sum election claims by incumbent earth station operators must be submitted by February 5, 2024. All reimbursement claims for costs incurred and paid by claimants after December 31, 2023 must be submitted by July 1, 2024.
Any anticipated claims that may be incurred and/or paid after the July 1, 2024 deadline must be submitted by the July 1, 2024 deadline with the best supporting documentation and information available at the time.
Timely filed reimbursement requests, that comply with the reimbursement procedures, will be processed even if the Relocation Payment Clearinghouse (“RPC”) requests additional information after the deadline. Similarly, in limited circumstances, claimants may be permitted to amend claims if the initial claim was timely filed.
The Bureau declined to mandate decision deadlines for the RPC or make other procedural changes at this time.
The Public Notice provides additional detail on submissions and deadlines that we recommend sharing with your colleagues involved in this process.
