Tuesday, January 09, 2007 | Comments

The 800 MHz Transition Administrator (TA) released additional reconfiguration guidance. Based on lessons learned from the 800 MHz reconfiguration program to date, the TA has identified a number of areas that require additional guidance for licensees.

Mutual Aid and Interoperability. A new fact sheet defines the steps that the TA recommends licensees complete as part of the planning process to ensure that no organizations or groups of users are missed during reconfiguration, to generate specific interoperability requirements, and to coordinate interoperability solutions.  

Cost Estimate Preparations. The new guidelines provide instructions for preparing a cost estimate to submit to Sprint Nextel to request reconfiguration funding and to use during frequency reconfiguration agreement (FRA) negotiations with Sprint Nextel. The guidelines state the minimum level of detail that should be included in a cost estimate for tasks and costs applicable to the reconfiguration of a licensee’s system.

Change Notice and Amendment. A fact sheet provides structure and guidance to licensees regarding the change-notice process.

Actual Cost Reconciliation and Incumbent Labor Reimbursement. A fact sheet guides licensees regarding the documents required to support the costs they have incurred. The updated policy addresses reimbursement of licensee internal labor costs incurred in planning for or reconfiguring a licensee’s existing facilities to operate on its replacement 800 MHz frequencies.
