verify the accuracy of "R," the revenue variable in the PCI formula that equals base period (2010)
demand multiplied by rates. Demand and price data are reported in the aggregate under the primary rate
elements of each category. The level of aggregation in the RTE1 forms allows rapid, consistent
verification of index calculations across all companies. There are no revisions to the RTE1 forms.
9. Rate Detail Form
20. In their previous annual filings, ILECs provided a form that gave complete rate element
detail, i.e., demand, existing rates, and proposed rates for each rate element subject to price caps. ILECs
should again file this form with their 2011 annual access tariff filing. We leave unspecified the exact format
of the rate detail form because each price cap ILEC has a different number of rate elements. For each rate
element, however, ILECs should display the rate element name, jurisdiction, base period demand, current
rates, and proposed rates. ILECs may also include a rate identifying code. The revenue amounts for baskets
and categories should be totaled to assist in verifying the agreement between this form and the revenue
amounts in RTEI. The variation in the number of rate elements among ILECs prevents us from specifying
the row numbers, but each row of this form should correspond to only one rate element. The rows should
reflect the basket and service category sequence used in RTEI. There are no revisions to this form.
10. Services Excluded from Price Caps
21. For the 2011 filing, we request companies to provide a list of services that are tariffed, but
are not in price caps, and the tariff section containing each service. Rate element details must be provided for
the following categories: Special Construction/ICBs; Packet Services (e.g., ATM, Frame Relay); End User
Charges (e.g., USF charges, LNP); Government Services (e.g., FTS); Miscellaneous/Other (e.g., engineering
services); and services that were in price caps but have been removed (e.g., interexchange services, special
access, trunking). Companies must provide information as to the authorization for removal. The company
must identify the major service and indicate whether the rate is recurring or non-recurring. ILECs must
clearly state in their cover letter where this information can be found in their TRP.
22. Price cap ILECs may, if they wish to do so, submit their Form 492A for calendar years
2009 and 2010 as part of their TRP support material, and use the footnote page provided on Form 492A
to explain the development of composite tax rates. As in previous annual filings, the earnings of services
excluded from price cap treatment should be removed based on the assumption that the excluded services
earned the same interstate rate of return as did price cap services. The Wireline Competition Bureau's
Industry Analysis and Technology Division will have copies of the Form 492A on file.
23. In addition to the above specifications, price cap ILECs must include with their support
materials a list of all currently applicable Part 69 waivers. The list should include the following
information: (1) a citation to the Commission or Bureau order granting the waiver, (2) a brief description
of the waiver, including whether any new rate elements were authorized; and (3) the basket and, if
applicable, service category of each rate element affected by the waiver.
III. RATE-OF-RETURN TARIFF REVIEW PLAN
A. Modifications to the Rate-of-Return TRP
24. In the 2011 rate-of-return TRP, we have adopted certain changes to the 2010 rate-of-
return TRP. These modifications are noted in the forms and workpapers. The TRP for section 61.39
carriers is contained in the Appendix.
