Things that make you go "Huh"

Sometimes I'm sure I must be missing something. I was looking at a recent appeal where USAC denied funding because "ineligible products and services may not be factored into the cost-effective evaluation." Huh? Look at USAC's page on Constructing an Evaluation. One of the examples includes the following criterion: "Other cost factors (including price of ineligible goods and services, price of changing providers, price for breaking contract, etc)."

I think what USAC meant to say was that in evaluating cost-effectiveness, the price of eligible products and services must be the primary factor, and that the cost of ineligible products and services, if the applicant wishes to consider them, must be in a separate criterion.
