Dear Mr. Rowe

Subject: Company's Split Rate Base (SRB) Manual Filing Pursuant to SaskTel - Transition to federal regulation, Decision CRTC 2000-150, 9 May 2000 (Decision 2000-150)

On 24 November 2000, Saskatchewan Telecommunications (SaskTel) outlined its proposed methodology for the empirical test of Common costs in compliance with paragraph 37 of Decision 2000-150. In addition, the company stated that it has modified the assignment procedures for customer profile information related costs to comply with the directives in Implementation of regulatory framework - splitting of the rate base and related issues, Telecom Decision CRTC 95-21, 31 October 1995. SaskTel stated that the latter change will be reflected in the 2000 SRB Manual that will be filed on 31 March 2001.

The Commission approves SaskTel's proposed methodology for the empirical test of its Common costs. The Commission also approves SaskTel's proposal to file its updated customer profile costs methodology on 31 March 2001. However, the latter methodology will be subject to review prior to Commission approval.

Yours sincerely,

Ursula Menke

Secretary General
