1. The Bureaus announce that Auction 902, the single-round reverse auction that will award up to $50 million in one-time Tribal Mobility Fund Phase I support, will be conducted on February 25, 2014. The Auction 902 Rescheduling Public Notice also revises the previously-announced schedule of pre-auction deadlines for Auction 902.

2. The Auction 902 short-form application filing window opened at 12 noon ET on September 30, 2013, but was suspended on October 1, 2013, along with other Commission operations. Regular Commission operations were suspended from October 1 through October 16, 2013, due to a Government-wide lapse in funding. In the Auction 902 Rescheduling Public Notice, the Bureaus adopt schedule changes intended to give potential bidders and Commission staff additional time for planning and preparation for Auction 902 following the now-concluded 16-day suspension of regular Commission operations.

The following dates and deadlines will now apply to Auction 902: (1) A revised auction tutorial incorporating the revised dates and deadlines will be available (via Internet) by November 18, 2013; (2) the short-form application (FCC Form 180) filing window will reopen on November 18, 2013, at 12:00 noon ET; (3) the short-form application (FCC Form 180) filing window will close on December 5, 2013, at 6:00 p.m. ET; (4) a mock auction will be held on February 21, 2014; and (5) Auction 902 will be held on February 25, 2014. All other procedures, terms and requirements as set out in the Auction 902 Procedures Public Notice, 78 FR 56875, September 16, 2013, remain unchanged.

4. The Bureaus note that any information previously saved in a short-form application, FCC Form 180, during the period that the filing window was open prior to the suspension of the window on October 1, 2013, will be retained in the Commission's Auction system and will be accessible to the applicant when the short-form application filing window reopens.
