RPC C-BAND HANDBOOK
The C-band Handbook provides program stakeholders and interested parties with information on the RPC’s policies and procedures. The C-band Handbook has not been and will not be approved by the FCC. In the event of any conflict between the FCC’s Rules (as defined in the Handbook) and the C-band Handbook, the FCC’s Rules shall control. Program stakeholders and interested parties should consult with counsel regarding the substance and application of the FCC’s Rules that govern all matters associated with the C-band relocation.
The Handbook is subject to revision and parties should ensure that they are referencing the most current version.
RPC C-BAND HANDBOOK SUMMARY OF SELECTED CHANGES
On April 30, 2021, the Relocation Payment Clearinghouse LLC (“RPC”) posted on its website a draft C-band Handbook and welcomed comments on it from program stakeholders and interested parties. The RPC has now published the C-band Handbook (Version 1.0). This is a summary, by section, of selected edits made since the posting of the draft C-band Handbook that are reflected in the C-band Handbook (Version 1.0). This is a summary only. It is not meant to be comprehensive or to take the place of the published C-band Handbook (Version 1.0).
ACCOUNT SETUP IN COUPA, RPC’S CLAIMS PROCESSING SYSTEM
We are pleased to announce that the Relocation Payment Clearinghouse LLC (“RPC”) will be launching Coupa, the RPC’s system for submitting and processing claims associated with the C-band relocation program. Claims include claims for reimbursement of relocation costs and claims for lump sum reimbursements, which are mutually exclusive.
The RPC has conducted preliminary outreach to known lump-sum electees and space station operators that may be eligible to submit claims for reimbursement of relocation costs or claims for lump sum reimbursement as part of the C-band relocation program.
If your organization has previously been contacted by the RPC and has provided the requested contact information, no action is needed.
If your organization has not been contacted by the RPC and you believe you are eligible to submit a claim under the C-band relocation program, please send an email to info@CbandRPC.com with “SETUP” in the subject line with the following information:
