FCC Sends Special Access Data Collection to OMB for Review

Posted by Sharon Thomas

Three months following the release of its September 18 Report and Order on the Dedicated Service/Special Access Data Collection requirements (see September 19 post, FCC Issues Final Order on Special Access Data Collection), the FCC has submitted the collection requirements to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval as required under the Paperwork Reduction Act. Comments are due by January 8, 2014, and OMB will have 30 days following that date to issue a decision. Sometime soon thereafter (assuming OMB approval), we expect the FCC to issue a Public Notice announcing the due date for responses to the extensive data request. We anticipate that responses will be due 90-120 days following OMB approval -- sometime in the May-June timeframe.  Considering the expansive nature of the data request, the dedicated service providers and purchases who are required to respond will need to begin work on this effort soon to ensure compliance--which is mandatory--by the deadline.
