|FCC OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY RELOCATES TO THE PORTALS|
Procedure for Paper Filings
Effective November 2, 1998, the Office of the Secretary will relocate to the Commission's new building facilities at The Portals, 445 Twelfth Street, S.W., Washington, D.C., 20554. The Secretary's new office will be open for business, as usual, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Mondays through Fridays, except holidays. Paper filings will be received at a designated counter located at TW-A325 in the 12th Street lobby of the building, where filers will be able to receive their "stamp and return" copy, upon request.
The Commission expects to complete its relocation to The Portals within the next six months. For the public's convenience during this transition period, the Office of the Secretary will accept paper filings at 1919 M Street, N.W., Room 222, but only between the hours of 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., Mondays through Fridays, except holidays. If requested, "stamp and return" copies will be provided at the time of filing. This temporary filing site will be closed on the date that the Commission completes its relocation to The Portals.
The Commission encourages those wishing to file paper documents to begin making these filings at the Portals building. In addition, to ensure the expeditious receipt and distribution of paper filings during the transition period, the public should follow the established Guidelines for Uniform Filings. These guidelines are printed on the reverse side of this Public Notice.
Please forward any questions to Magalie Roman Salas, FCC Secretary; Bill Caton, Deputy Secretary; or Ruth Dancey, Assistant Secretary, at 202-418-0300.
