Notice of Agreements Filed, 62994 [E8-25095]

Download as PDF 62994 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 205 / Wednesday, October 22, 2008 / Notices sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES standard for forbearance under section 10 of the Act. Specially, the Commission concluded that there is no current need to apply the Cost Assignment Rules to AT&T. In addition, the Commission stated that LECs similarly situated to AT&T are free to seek comparable forbearance relief. Among other things, AT&T asked for forbearance from four of the Commission’s reporting requirements, including the Access Report (ARMIS 43–04.) As a condition of this forbearance, the Commission required AT&T to file a compliance plan, which must include, among other things, a description of its imputation methodology. AT&T must demonstrate that its access charge imputation methodologies remain consistent with section 272(e)(3) of the Communications rules and the Section 272 Sunset Order. In particular, AT&T’s compliance plan must describe how it will account for imputed tariff rates given the grant of the requested forbearance from section 32.5280(b) and (c) of the Commission’s rules. The Commission required that AT&T describe in detail how it will continue to fulfill its statutory and regulatory obligations, including section 254(k), and the conditions of this Order. The relief granted in this Order will not become effective unless and until AT&T’s plan is approved. The compliance plan must also include AT&T’s first annual certification that it will comply with its obligations under section 254(k) in the absence of the Cost Assignment Rules and will provide any requested cost accounting information necessary to prove such compliance. Also, the Commission required AT&T to include a proposal for how it will maintain its accounting procedures and data in a manner that will allow it to provide useable information on a timely basis if requested by the Commission to comply with any of the conditions of this relief and its commitment to the Commission. Finally, the plan must include an explanation of the transition process that AT&T will undertake, including an expected schedule, to discontinue compliance with Cost Assignment Rules and replace them with the procedures outlined in its compliance plan upon approval of the plan. The Commission delegated to the Chief of the Wireline Competition Bureau (Bureau) to prescribe the administrative requirements of the filing and to approve the plan when the Bureau is satisfied that AT&T will implement a method of preserving the integrity of its accounting system in the absence of the Cost Assignment Rules. Upon approval, the Bureau will release a public notice notifying the public of approval of the plan. In the Commission’s Memorandum Opinion and Order and Notice of Proposed Rulemaking WC Docket No. 08–190, et al., FCC 08–203, released September 6, 2008, it noted that in this proceeding parties have raised the issue of the overlap between the ARMIS requirements at issue in this proceeding and certain cost assignment relief previously granted to AT&T. Because the Commission found that the reasoning of the AT&T Cost Assignment VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:50 Oct 21, 2008 Jkt 217001 Forbearance Order applies to Verizon and Qwest, it took the opportunity, on its own motion, to extend to them the conditional forbearance granted in the AT&T Cost Assignment Forbearance Order, subject to approval of their compliance plan. The Commission uses an indexed revenue threshold to determine which carriers are required to file the ARMIS reports. The current revenue threshold between Class A carriers and Class B carriers is $138 million and the revenue threshold between larger Class A carriers and mid-sized carriers is $8.181 billion.
