Econometrica is providing statistical modeling and analysis services for Universal Service Administrative Company’s (USAC) Payment Quality Assurance Internal Audit Division, Schools and Libraries Program, and High Cost Mobility Fund. Econometrica provides guidance on the appropriate sample selections for these programs and performs the following:
- Reviews data on USAC disbursements and prepares or assesses a sampling plan.
- Reviews results of the assessments on an ongoing basis to ensure the sampling plan continues to meet requirements. Amends the sampling plan if necessary.
- Prepares final reports summarizing sampling methodology and compliance with statistical sampling requirements, analysis of assessment results, and discussion of payment error rates.
Consults with USAC and, as necessary, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission, regarding sampling plans and results of sample assessments.
