District of Columbia Gets Extension on PSST Lease Fee (10/27/10)
Wednesday, October 27, 2010 | Comments

The FCC gave the District of Columbia 45 more days to pay the administrative fee due to the Public Safety Spectrum Trust (PSST) under the approved budget for administration of the long-term spectrum leases in the 700 MHz public-safety broadband spectrum.

Each entity that was granted a waiver seeking early deployment of statewide or local public safety broadband networks in the 700 MHz public-safety broadband spectrum is required to pay the PSST $15,000 for its first year administrative fee. The payment is due Nov. 1, 60 days after the approval of a petitioner’s lease. The FCC approved the submitted leases Sept. 2.

On Oct. 21, the District of Columbia filed a request seeking a waiver of the 60-day deadline for submission of the administrative fee to the PSST. District officials said that while it is in the process of effectuating the payment, unforeseen administrative delays render it unable to make payment by Nov. 1.

“While we find that the limited waiver requested here is warranted under the circumstances presented by the district, we encourage all petitioners to proceed diligently with each of the conditions imposed by the waiver order to ensure timely progress and open collaboration with all stakeholders,” an FCC statement said.
