Set wide the window. Let me drink the day.*

At last, the filing window has been announced!  Opening February 27, closing May 11.

Buried in the middle of that announcement is a new procedure you need to pay attention to: this year we have a sort of storm window.  This year, all entity information, including enrollments and NSLP, will be locked when the window opens.  So you've got 3 weeks to make sure that you have all the correct entities in EPC, and that the entities have the correct info.  How many RALs is that going to create?

Here's a little historical context:
Fund Year FCC releases ESL  Window announced Days passed Window open 60 days? Window close Window days

2015 10/28/2014 12/19/2014 52 1/14/2015 78 3/26/2015 71
2016 9/11/2015 1/25/2016 136 2/3/2016 145 4/29/2016 86
2017 9/12/2016 2/3/2017 144 2/27/2017 168 5/11/2017 73
Some explanations:
"Days passed" is the number of days that passed between the release of the ESL and the announcement of the window dates.
"60 days" is the number of days between the release of the ESL and the opening of the window, which should be at least 60 days per the Third Report and Order.
"Window days" is the number of days that the window is open.

This year's timing is similar to last year's unprecedented timing, just pushed back a couple of weeks to fit in the "pre-window" entity correction window.  (And last year's got pushed back further during the window.)
