FCC Registration Numbers


If you do not have an FCC Registration Number already connected to your USAC issued Billed Entity Number, you may easily obtain an FCCRN via the FCC’s COmmission REgistration System (CORES).

Consultants Registration Numbers


A consultant is defined as any non-employee of the entity applying for funding that assists in filling out the application materials for a fee. Consultants may be organizations with one or more employees or they may be individuals. Anyone or any entity that is not directly employed by an eligible entity, and submits or certifies E-rate Forms on behalf of eligible entities, should be sure to, at a minimum, obtain an E-rate Letter of Agency from the eligible entities they represent prior to submitting any Forms to USAC or conducting any procurement activity on behalf of an eligible entity. Consultants must include their USAC assigned Consultant Registration Number on E-rate forms. USAC provides a comprehensive “How-To” for Consultants.

Service Providers & Vendors


A Service Provider Identification Number (SPIN) is a unique nine-digit number assigned to your company by USAC. Service providers may want more than one SPIN if you have business units separated by type of service, or for other reasons, but you need at least one SPIN to participate in the Schools and Libraries Program. USAC provides a comprehensive “How-To” for Service Providers.
