§ 24.245 Reimbursement under the Cost-Sharing Plan.
(a) Registration of reimbursement rights. (1) To obtain reimbursement,
a PCS relocator must submit documentation of the relocation agreement
to the clearinghouse within ten business days of the date a relocation
agreement is signed with an incumbent.
(2) To obtain reimbursement, a voluntarily relocating microwave
incumbent must submit documentation of the relocation of the link to
the clearinghouse within ten business days of the date that the
incumbent notifies the Commission that it intends to discontinue, or
has discontinued, the use of the link, pursuant to § 101.305 of the
(b) Documentation of expenses. Once relocation occurs, the PCS
relocator or the voluntarily relocating microwave incumbent, must
submit documentation itemizing the amount spent for items listed in
§ 24.243(b). The voluntarily relocating microwave incumbent, must also
submit an independent third party appraisal of its compensable
relocation costs. The appraisal should be based on the actual cost of
replacing the incumbent's system with comparable facilities and should
exclude the cost of any equipment upgrades or items outside the scope
of § 24.243(b). The PCS relocator or the voluntarily relocating
microwave incumbent, must identify the particular link associated with
appropriate expenses (i.e., costs may not be averaged over numerous
links). If a PCS relocator pays a microwave incumbent a monetary sum to
relocate its own facilities, the PCS relocator must estimate the costs
associated with relocating the incumbent by itemizing the anticipated
cost for items listed in § 24.243(b). If the sum paid to the incumbent
cannot be accounted for, the remaining amount is not eligible for
reimbursement. A PCS relocator may submit receipts or other
documentation to the clearinghouse for all relocation expenses incurred
since April 5, 1995.
(c) Full Reimbursement. A PCS relocator who relocates a microwave link
that is either fully outside its market area or its licensed frequency
band may seek full reimbursement through the clearinghouse of
compensable costs, up to the reimbursement cap as defined in
§ 24.243(b). Such reimbursement will not be subject to depreciation
under the cost-sharing formula.
