OUS Fund Worksheet Summary
OUS1 Worksheet: Telecommunications Service Provider Identification
The OUS1 Worksheet identifies the telecommunications service provider (TSP), the contact person, and the mailing address.  It also certifies the accuracy of the information provided on the worksheets.  All TSPs must file the worksheet to establish the provider's identification information on the fund administrator's database.  The provider must file a corrected worksheet whenever changes occur to its business, organization structure, mailing address, contact person, or certifying officer.  In addition, the fund administrator requests updated information annually to ensure that the provider identification information is not older than 12 months.

OUS2 Worksheet: Revenue (Contribution) Reporting
The OUS2 Worksheet identifies quarterly telecommunication revenues.  It categorizes revenue by wholesale, retail, and excluded.  Wholesale revenues are revenues derived from services provided to other TSPs and are not subject to OUS surcharges. These include revenues derived from access services purchased by interexchange carriers, interconnection and UNEs purchased by competitive local exchange carriers (LECs), and finished services sold to resellers.  Oregon intrastate retail revenue is the assessment base for the OUS fund contributions.  All certified TSPs operating in Oregon must file the worksheet with the fund administrator by the 28th day of the second month following the close of each quarter.

OUS3 Worksheet: Distribution Line-Count Reporting
The OUS3 Worksheet identifies basic telephone service access line-counts by wire center support area.  Basic service line-counts provide the basis for calculating the size of the OUS fund and the monthly distribution of support.  Distributions are based on the number of subscriber lines located in high-cost wire centers that are used in the provision of basic telephone service by LECs designated as eligible by the PUC.  The eligible LECs must file the worksheet with the fund administrator within 40 days of the close of each quarter.
