  § 54.707   Audit controls.

   (a) The Administrator shall have the authority to audit contributors
   and carriers reporting data to the Administrator. The Administrator
   shall establish procedures to verify discounts, offsets and support
   amounts provided by the universal service support programs, and may
   suspend or delay discounts, offsets, and support amounts provided to a
   carrier if the carrier fails to provide adequate verification of
   discounts, offsets, or support amounts provided upon reasonable
   request, or if directed by the Commission to do so. The Administrator
   shall not provide reimbursements, offsets or support amounts pursuant
   to subparts D, K, L and M of this part to a carrier until the carrier
   has provided to the Administrator a true and correct copy of the
   decision of a state commission designating that carrier as an eligible
   telecommunications carrier in accordance with § 54.202.

   (b) The Administrator has the right to obtain all cost and revenue
   submissions and related information, at any time and in unaltered
   format, that carriers submit to NECA that are used to calculate support
   payments pursuant to subparts D, K, and M of this part.

   (c) The Administrator (and NECA, to the extent the Administrator does
   not directly receive information from carriers) shall provide to the
   Commission upon request all underlying data collected from eligible
   telecommunications carriers to calculate payments pursuant to subparts
   D, K, L and M of this part.
