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:
|❯||Point of Contact *|
