COMMENT SOUGHT ON

INTERCARRIER COMPENSATION REFORM COMPLIANCE AND MONITORING FORM

CC Docket Nos. 01-92, 96-45; GN Docket No. 09-51; WC Docket Nos. 03-109, 05-337, 07-135, 10-90;

Comment Date: February 4, 2013
Reply Comment Date: February 19, 2013

On October 27, 2011, the Commission adopted a Report and Order and Further Notice of
Proposed Rulemaking comprehensively reforming its Universal Service Fund (USF) and intercarrier
compensation (ICC) systems.1 As part of its reforms, the Commission adopted a recovery mechanism to
facilitate incumbent local exchange carriers’ (LECs) gradual transition away from intercarrier revenues
reduced as part of the reforms adopted in the USF/ICC Transformation Order.2 The USF/ICC
Transformation Order
requires incumbent LECs that participate in the intercarrier compensation recovery
mechanism to file, on an annual basis, data regarding their “ICC rates, revenues, expenses, and demand.”3
The Commission explained that such data are necessary to: (1) monitor compliance with the
provisions of the Order and accompanying rules; (2) monitor the impact of the reforms adopted in the
Order; (3) resolve outstanding issues raised in the Further Notice portion of the Order; (4) enable the
Commission to evaluate the trend of intercarrier revenues, expenses, and minutes; and (5) compare such
data uniformly across all carriers.4 The Commission delegated to the Wireline Competition Bureau “the
authority to adopt a template for submitting the data . . . .”5 By this Public Notice, we seek comment on
using the proposed ICC Reform Compliance and Monitoring Form and the accompanying instructions
available through the Internet link below as a means to collect the required data.

Rulemaking, 26 FCC Rcd 17663 (2011), pets. for review pending, Direct Commc'ns Cedar Valley, LLC v. FCC, No.
11-9581 (10th Cir. filed Dec. 18, 2011) (and consolidated cases) (USF/ICC Transformation Order).

4 Id. at 17996, para. 922.
5 Id. at 17996, para. 923.

In the USF/ICC Transformation Order, the Commission required incumbent LECs to file ICC
data from the preceding fiscal year “electronically annually at the same time as their annual interstate
access tariff filings.”6 Though the 2012 annual access tariff filing has already taken place, we intend to
collect Fiscal Year 2011 data. We will establish a deadline for submitting that data after we receive
comment in response to this Public Notice and finalize the ICC Reform Compliance and Monitoring
Form and instructions.7 In subsequent years, incumbent LECs must submit this information at the same
time as they file their annual interstate access tariff filings, as required by the USF/ICC Transformation
Order.

ICC Reform Compliance and Monitoring Form Content and Instructions

The Internet link below labeled “Proposed ICC Reform Compliance and Monitoring Form”
leads to a Microsoft Excel 2010 spreadsheet with multiple tabs which, if completed, would contain the
data that we propose to collect from incumbent LECs participating in the recovery mechanism. A
document containing instructions for completing this proposed ICC Reform Compliance and Monitoring
Form is attached to this Public Notice as Attachment A. We seek comment on whether the proposed form
and the accompanying instructions are sufficient to collect the data required to monitor compliance with
the USF/ICC Transformation Order; to monitor its impact; to resolve outstanding issues raised in the
Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking portion of the USF/ICC Transformation Order; to evaluate
intercarrier compensation trends; and to compare data across all carriers.9 We also seek comment as to
whether the proposed form would collect data in a manner consistent with the USF/ICC Transformation
Order
and subsequent clarification Order.10
With respect to the confidentiality of data to be submitted,11 we seek comment regarding
whether the protections afforded in the Commission’s Third Protective Order12 adopted in these
proceedings are sufficient to protect any confidential data that may be provided. If not, what other
measures are needed to satisfy this purpose and why? We also seek comment on the proposed
instructions attached to this Public Notice as Attachment A. Are the proposed ICC Reform Compliance

7 We emphasize, however, that the information required for the ICC Reform Compliance and Monitoring Form is
separate and apart from the materials required to support any proposed tariff revisions. Thus, carriers filing tariff
revisions as part of any annual access charge tariff filing must still provide all information necessary to support
proposed tariff revisions. See Material to be Filed in Support of 2012 Annual Access Tariff Filings, WCB/Pricing
File No. 12-08, Order, 27 FCC Rcd 3960 (Wireline Comp. Bur. 2012).

protective order and will be treated as confidential.”).

rulemaking. Connect America Fund et al., WC Docket Nos. 10-90, 07-135, 05-337, 03-109; GN Docket No. 09-51;

and Monitoring Form and accompanying instructions sufficiently clear so parties will know exactly what
data to file? Are these instructions sufficient to ensure that filers report data in a uniform manner?

II.

ICC Compliance Monitoring Form Format and Filing Procedures

We separately seek comment on the format and filing procedures we should adopt to collect the
required data. Initially, we propose to use a Microsoft Excel 2010 spreadsheet with multiple tabs as the
filing format. We believe that this format will gather data in a manner compatible with database software,
including automated database applications. We seek comment on whether we should adopt a format that
is compatible with database software, including automated database applications, and if so, whether the
proposed form works for this purpose. Would a different format be more efficient or appropriate? The
USF/ICC Transformation Order requires information to be filed annually and electronically.13 We
envision requiring parties to file the proposed ICC Reform Compliance and Monitoring Form using the
Commission’s Electronic Tariff Filing System (ETFS). This process is comparable to the manner in
which Annual Access Tariff Review Plans are submitted through the ETFS. Will submission of a
Commission-provided spreadsheet, such as the proposed ICC reform compliance and monitoring form,
within ETFS work as a method of filing the required data? If not, what would be a preferable electronic
filing method?

ATTACHMENT A

Intercarrier Compensation Reform Compliance and Monitoring Form Instructions

The Intercarrier Compensation Reform Compliance and Monitoring Form requires incumbent
LECs to file certain interstate and intrastate data related to intercarrier compensation rates, revenues,
expenses, and demand. For interstate data, reporting LECs must aggregate data for all of a holding
company’s LEC operations. For intrastate data, reporting LECs must aggregate data for each of a holding
company’s LEC state operations, and must also report totals as the sum for all states. The proposed
Microsoft Excel form template is a multi-tab worksheet that has separate rows within the relevant tabs on
which to report intrastate data for each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and
American Samoa.
Reporting LECs must report:
 The number of lines and ports as of the end of the reporting period (September 30 of the prior
reporting year), and the 12-month amount of minutes of use (MOU), messages, revenue, and
expense for the reporting period
 Demand (e.g., MOU) for services provided in the reporting year and for which revenue was
collected by March 31 of the following year
Revenue for services provided in the reporting year and collected by March 31 of the following
year.
 Expense for services received in the reporting year and paid for by March 31 of the following
year.
Reporting LECs shall report all data in whole numbers, shall report dollar amounts without using dollar
signs, and shall report all amounts using a comma to separate thousands (e.g., report one million as
1,000,000).
All instructions shall be followed. All questions must be answered and all statements must be completed.
If the proper answer is “none” or “not applicable,” parties are required to insert that answer.
All data that requires clarification should be noted and fully explained.

TAB INSTRUCTIONS

Within each tab on the worksheet, each row, other than row 1, specifies a switched access or reciprocal
compensation rate element, group of rate elements, or total for a group of rate elements for which
demand, revenue, or expense data are reported. Row 1 contains the column heading.
