Telecom Order CRTC 99-1222

  Ottawa, 23 December 1999
  On 29 October 1999, pursuant to Telecom Order CRTC 99-941, 30 September 1999 (Order 99-941), the Canadian Alliance of Publicly-Owned Telecommunications Systems (CAPTS) requested final approval of its members' revised 1997 Carrier Access Tariffs (CATs).
  File No.: Tariff Notice 5
  1. CAPTS' filing was in accordance with Order 99-941, except it had increased the total amount of its members' estimated 1996 fund administration fee by approximately $34,000.
  2. In Order 99-941, based on the original estimate provided by CAPTS in its 1 June 1999 submission, the Commission determined that CAPTS could increase its 1996 base contribution requirements by an amount representing its estimated 1996 fund administration fee for the purposes of calculating its final 1997 contribution rates.
  3. The Commission has reviewed the revised estimated 1996 fund administration fee and does not consider it to be reasonable. Therefore, the request by CAPTS to increase the estimated 1996 fund administration fee is denied. The 1997 contribution rates will be based on the original estimate provided by CAPTS in its 1 June 1999 submission.
  4. In light of the foregoing, the Commission orders that:
  (a) CAPTS members' revised final 1997 contribution rates are denied;
  (b) the contribution and direct toll rates listed in the attached table are approved on a final basis for the period 1 January 1997 to 31 December 1997;
  (c) CAPTS is to issue, within 15 days, revised tariff pages reflecting the approved CAT rates for its members; and
  (d) CAPTS is to file within 30 days:
  (i) actual 1997 Phase III results which include the revised CAT revenues calculated based on the approved rates in the attached table; and
  (ii) actual rates of return for 1997 for the regulated portion of the company and in the event that a company has over-earned in a particular year, the amount that will be refunded to toll providers.
