Who will audit records?
Beneficiary audits may be performed by USAC internal audit staff, the FCC Office of Inspector General, Inspector General, Offices of other federal agencies, or a firm under contract to USAC or the FCC. Please feel free to contact the USAC Internal Audit Department at (202) 776-0200 if you have any concern as to the proper identity of any individual contacting you regarding an audit.
Typically, a beneficiary will be contacted by USAC two to three weeks prior to the start of an audit to assure that the appropriate personnel and documentation will be available. The anticipated duration of an audit can vary depending on the quantity, size, and dollar value of the applications involved.« Back to FAQs
