In 2017, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report focusing on the Lifeline program. Tucked away in that report was a significant discussion of Universal Service Fund (USF) contributor audits that has received little attention. In a recent episode of Kelley Drye’s Full Spectrum podcast, Partner Steve Augustino and Special Counsel Denise Smith discussed four trends in USF contributor audits that they expect to result from the GAO report.
Kelley Drye’s Communications group continues to monitor this and other USF issues. Join us on March 8th for our 9th Annual USF Update webinar as the group discusses audits, enforcement actions and more.
