The company has been involved with E-rate at the local, state, and national levels since the program’s inception.
In working with individual applicants, Integra Services has adopted an accounting-like approach to the E-rate application process. We work with schools and libraries much like a tax accountant would work with individuals or small businesses. We collect all necessary information from applicants, prepare all E-rate forms, serve as the first point of contact on all SLD reviews, prepare appeals if needed, and coordinate with suppliers on contract and billing issues.

If you believe you have been improperly denied E-rate funding you have options! In the E-rate program, you can appeal any adverse decision and there are multiple levels of appeals. If your funding has been denied, or reduced, you have missed one of the many deadlines, or if you have an adverse audit finding the experts at Integra Services can help!
E-rate applications are often denied or funding reduced. In some cases program audits result in a Funding Commitment Adjustment (COMAD) and requests to return program funds to the Administrator. All funding denials and commitment adjustments can be appealed. Applicants have the right to appeal adverse decisions of the Administrator. Integra Services has the expertise and resources to assist schools and libraries with appeals to the Administrator and Federal Communications Commission. Appeals must be submitted within 60 days of an Administrator’s decision and must be filed in a specific format. Intera Services has a proven track record of successfully overturning Administrator decisions and will fight to secure E-Rate funding for deserving applicants.
Audits are a natural part of any extensive program and help ensure that funds are being used in compliance with program rules. The E-rate program includes many different types of audits, which include Payment Quality Assurance (PQA) reviews, Agreed-Upon Procedures audits, and Investigatory audits. These audits may be conducted by external audit firms hired by the Administrator, Administrator audit staff, or FCC Office of Inspector General auditors. Many applicants that face these types of reviews may be doing so for the first time and could use the assistance of seasoned professionals. Our experience with the procedures, practices and methodologies of the E-rate program and enforcement agencies, enables us to provide our clients with unmatched representation services during any audit or review by the Administrator or the FCC.
