Telecommunications Equipment Representation

Federal agencies may request Iowa State University to sign a document regarding telecommunications equipment. Different agencies use different forms, but the title is usually something similar to “Representation Regarding Certain Telecommunications and Video Surveillance Services or Equipment”. The document may also be referred to as Form 889. By signing the document, Iowa State University represents that it does not use, and will not provide the federal government, telecommunications equipment produced or provided by certain entities.


Due to the number of requests for Iowa State University to sign such documents, Iowa State University is posting here signed copies of the documents. Please provide a link to this page or a copy of one of signed documents to the agency requesting the document. If these documents are different in format from the document requested by the agency or if the agency will not accept these documents, please contact the Office of General Counsel for additional assistance.


Some agencies will waive the requirement to sign the form if an entity is registered in the System for Award Management (SAM). Consequently, you should also inform the agency representative that Iowa State University has an active entity registration in the System for Award Management (SAM) and its certification includes the Covered Telecommunications Equipment or Services – Representation (FAR 52.204-26) provision.
