Best Practices for Document Retention

E-RATE DOCUMENT RETENTION – BEST PRACTICES

RULE:

USAC requires that all applicants retain their E-rate related records for a period of 10 Years after the latter of the last day of the applicable funding year or the service delivery deadline for the funding request.

PROBLEM:

Understanding that the information life-cycle of a typical E-rate Funding Request is now around 13 years, how can you, the applicant safely and securely store and retrieve all of your E-rate related documents?

SOLUTION:

Use of an electronic document retention solution such as our "E-Rate Document Repository" provides:

  • Organized and searchable home for all of your E-rate related documents and e-mails.
  • Secure cloud-based document storage and archive.
  • Collaborative work-space to share documents and e-mails between your school or library and your E-Rate Central account manager.
