H. USF Debarment
110. The Commission's rules provide for the debarment of those convicted of or found civilly liable for defrauding the high-cost support program. Applicants are reminded that those rules apply with equal force to the Tribal Mobility Fund Phase I.
I. Minor Modifications to Short-Form Applications
111. After the deadline for filing short-form applications, an Auction 902 applicant is permitted to make only minor changes to its application. Permissible minor changes include, among other things, deletion and addition of authorized bidders (to a maximum of three) and revision of the addresses and telephone numbers of the applicant and its contact person. An applicant is not permitted to make a major modification to its application (e.g., change in control of the applicant or change of the certifying official) after the initial application filing deadline. Thus, any change in control of an applicant, resulting from a merger, for example, will be considered a major modification, and the application will consequently be dismissed. The Bureaus reiterate that even if an applicant's short-form application is dismissed, the applicant would remain subject to the communication prohibitions of 47 CFR 1.21002 until the long-form application deadline after the auction closes.
112. If an applicant wishes to make permissible minor changes to its short-form application, such changes should be made electronically to its short-form application using the FCC Auction System whenever possible. For the change to be submitted and considered by the Commission, be sure to click on the SUBMIT button. After the revised application has been submitted, a confirmation page will be displayed that states the submission time, submission date, and a unique file number. The Bureaus advise applicants to print and retain a copy of this confirmation page.
113. An applicant cannot use the FCC Auction System outside of the initial and resubmission filing windows to make changes to its short-form application other than administrative changes (e.g., changing certain contact information or the name of an authorized bidder). If permissible minor changes need to be made outside of these windows, the applicant must submit a letter briefly summarizing the changes and subsequently update its short-form application in the FCC Auction System once it is available. Moreover, after the filing window has closed, the system will not permit applicants to make certain changes, such as the applicant's legal classification.
114. Any letter describing changes to an applicant's short-form application must be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The email summarizing the changes must include a subject or caption referring to Auction 902 and the name of the applicant, for example, "RE: Changes to Auction 902 Short-Form Application of
115. Any application amendment and related statements of fact must be certified by an appropriate party. Appropriate parties include one of the partners if the applicant is a partnership; an officer, director, or duly authorized employee, if the applicant is a corporation; or a member who is an officer, if the applicant is an unincorporated association.
