for purposes of computing payments and revenue requirements."" Finally, Section 64.604(cX)(5)
authorizes RLSA "to examine, verify and audit data received from TRS providers as necessary to assure
the accuracy and integrity of fund payments."'2 Consistent with this authority, RLSA shall verify the
accuracy of the data submitted by the providers to ensure that, with respect to projected costs, the costs
are reasonable and recoverable under the guidelines set forth in the Commission's rules and orders.
RLSA shall also review the providers' submitted overhead costs to ensure that such costs are properly
allocated. This review should include TRS traffic involving contractors or subcontractors of TRS
Fourth, RLSA should submit a report within 10 days of the end of each month to OMD, the
Inspector General, and the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau (CGB) that includes program
data (e.g., total TRS minutes of use, total interstate TRS minutes of use, total TRS operating expenses and
total TRS investment in general accordance with Part 32 of the Commission's rules, as applicable) and
financial data (e.g., administrative expenses, assets, fund balances).'4 RLSA should include in this
monthly report a detailed explanation of any discrepancies or errors uncovered in its regular review of
TRS provider data. Discrepancies or errors include, but are not limited to, duplicate minutes, billing for
test calls, and billing for calls associated with the installation of Video Relay Service telephones.'5
Finally, RLSA is directed to notify the Commission in writing (including the Inspector General,
OMD and CGB) of potential noncompliance or any waste, fraud, or abuse that it uncovers in its capacity
as the administrator of the TRS Fund as soon as possible but not later than seven (7) days after identifying
potential noncompliance. RLSA shall ensure that it notifies the Inspector General in writing of any
potential fraud or fraud indicators that it uncovers in its capacity as the administrator of the TRS Fund
within 24 hours of discovery. In addition, RLSA shall notify the Commission in writing (including the
Inspector General, OMD, and CGB) of any failure on the part of any TRS provider to submit any
information required under Commission rules or requested by RLSA.'6
