After entering your funding request (FRN) and FRN line items, you’ll arrive at the “Connectivity Information” summary portion of the FCC Form 471. Connectivity information populates automatically from your profile. If you did not enter this information in your profile before beginning the FCC Form 471, you will need to exit the form and enter the data in your profile.
After entering the line item’s bandwidth speed and connection information, enter the costs associated with the funding request (FRN) line item. The E-rate Productivity Center (EPC) will use your inputs to calculate the costs associated with the FRN line item.
Once you’ve successfully entered a funding request and generated a funding request number (FRN), it’s time to add line items that describe the funding request in detail. Start by clicking on the newly-created, blue FRN number to add a line item.
