25. For this rate-of-return tariff filing, the attached TRP is in the Microsoft Excel 97 format,
which can be created with Excel 97 or later. The Commission's Electronic Tariff Filing System accepts
Excel 97 files. This facilitates staff analysis of the data presented.
26. The rate-of-return TRP consists of several forms. In each form, carriers are required to
enter data in several fields. In the rows or columns where data entry is required in the worksheet, the
label "ENTER DATA" is evident. In those fields in which calculations are performed by pre-
programmed formulae in the spreadsheet, the words "CALCULATED FIELDS" appear.19
B. General Guidelines Applicable to NECA
27. We have not adopted a TRP for the National Exchange Carrier Association (NECA),
although NECA should refer to the rate-of-return TRP for guidance on the level of support materials to
provide in its annual filing. As in the past, NECA should provide: (1) earnings data using the ERN-1
format; and (2) average schedule company settlements using the COS-1 format.
IV. GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
28. The following general instructions apply to all ILECs. These instructions pertain to the
TRPs and other documentation filed in support of access charges.
A. Revised TRPs
29. If ILECs file to revise their TRP after June 16, 2011, the TRP should be refiled in its
entirety, rather than just the parts of the TRP that are changed. The latest TRP filed becomes the TRP of
record. Other parts of the original filing, e.g., portions of the explanations, description and justification,
and workpapers, may be omitted if unchanged by the revision.
30. The filing of inaccurate or incomplete data may seriously detract from the ability of the
Commission and interested parties to evaluate the revised rates. All ILECs must certify that their
historical and forecast data are accurate by including a signed statement that the support data are true,
correct, and complete to the best of the carrier's knowledge. This certification will apply to all data
submitted in support of revised rates, including the data that are filed in the TRP. The text of the
certification is the same as that adopted in the 1987 Waiver Order.2" The certification should be
displayed as the last page in the binder containing each company's TRP. ILECs are also under a
continuing legal obligation to correct any inaccurate or incomplete data subsequently discovered in the
TRP or other support data.2'
31. If carriers determine that they are unable to provide certain data in the TRP, they may
request a waiver. These waiver applications should demonstrate good cause for reporting a different or
lower level of detail than specified and should indicate how the carrier intends to report complete TRP
data in the future. Each carrier requesting any waiver of Commission rules should include all such
