OUS2 Worksheet Instruction
Block 1: Request revenue information for the 3-month period beginning and ending as identified in Block1. A check-off is also provided indication whether the revenue data is original or revised. The company identification number as shown at the upper right corner allows revenue information to be matched with telecommunications service provider (TSP) identification information provided on the OUS 1 Worksheet. 
 
Block 2: Gross billed Oregon revenues from all sources, including non-regulated and non-telecommunications services, with no allowances for uncollectible should be recorded on lines 1 through 27. Gross billed revenues are revenues derived from services provided in Oregon (includes intrastate, interstate, and international) even though the physical billing address may be out of state. Net settlements (i.e., the difference between booked revenues and gross billed revenues due to international settlements, NECA and OECA access pool settlements, etc.) should be recorded on line 28. Out-of-period adjustments should be recorded on line 29. The total gross revenue amount, reflecting the sum of billed revenues, net settlements, and out-of-period adjustments, should be recorded on line 31. This value should equal the gross booked revenue amount as recorded on the TSP’s financial statement before uncollectible.
 
Revenues should be recorded in two columns- Total Oregon Revenues (Column A) and Oregon intrastate Revenue (Column B). The jurisdictional identification of the revenues should be consistent with FCC separation rules in Title 47 CFR 36.201-225. In general, Oregon intrastate revenues are derived from telecommunications services that originate and terminate within the state regardless of how the communication is routed.
 
Billed revenues from services provided to other TSPs, who in turn contribute to the OUS fund (i.e., wholesale revenues), are recorded on lines 1-11. Billed revenues from services provided to end users and non-OUS contributors (i.e., retail revenues) are recorded on lines 12-20. Line 20, billed revenue from end users and non-OUS contributors) is the basis for the OUS contributions. Other revenues that are excluded from the OUS contribution base are recorded on lines 21-30.revenues from services provided to other TSPs, who in turn contribute to the OUS fund (i.e., wholesale revenues), are recorded on lines 1-11. Billed revenues from services provided to end users and non-OUS contributors (i.e., retail revenues) are recorded on lines 12-20. Line 20, billed revenue from end users and non-OUS contributors) is the basis for the OUS contributions. Other revenues that are excluded from the OUS contribution base are recorded on lines 21-30.
 
To allow the contributor to determine the amount owed to the OUS fund, the retail revenue amount from line 20, should be copied onto line 31. The contribution rate for the revenue period is provided on line 32. Multiplying lines 31 and 32 gives the contribution amount to be recorded on line 33. This amount is to be paid to the administrator by the date noted on the bottom of the worksheet ( usually the 28th of the second month after the close of the recovery quarter).
