Now it's for real

Up until now, PIA has been working on FY 2012 applications with procedures not approved by the FCC.  But yesterday, the FCC approved the PIA procedures.  In past years, it's been a couple of weeks between the approval of procedures.  This year, the approval doesn't mention any changes, so I think we could be looking at a first wave of approvals in early May.

Wouldn't you know it, PIA seems to have gotten a slower start this year than in the past.  (Clearing up FY 2010 Priority Two applications from the FCC's bizarre post-funding year rollover/tossback?)  So I don't think there is much of a stack of applications ready for the first wave.

Still, it's good to see this approval done in April, after longer waits the past 2 years.
