Dear Mr. Woodhead:

Re:        TELUS Communications Company – application to review and vary Telecom Decisions CRTC 2009-85 and 2010-11

By letter dated 12 April 2010, TELUS Communications Company (TCC) filed an application pursuant to Section 62 of the Telecommunications Act and Part VII of the CRTC Telecommunications Rules of Procedure.  In its application, TCC requested that the Commission review and vary Public Works and Government Services Canada – Application for a Commission determination regarding telecommunications services provided by Bell Canada, Telecom Decision CRTC 2009-85, 20 February 2009 (Telecom Decision 2009-85), and TELUS Communications Company – Application to review and vary portions of Telecom Decision 2009-85 regarding telecommunications services provided by Bell Canada to PWGSC, Telecom Decision CRTC 2010-11, 14 January 2010 (Telecom Decision 2010-11).

In Service standards for the disposition of telecommunications applications, Telecom Circular CRTC 2006-11, 7 December 2006, the Commission stated that it would categorize Part VII applications into two types: Type 1 applications that generally do not involve multiple parties or raise significant policy issues; and Type 2 applications that do involve multiple parties and/or raise significant policy issues.

The Commission also adopted the following service standards for Part VII applications:

The Commission stated that it would inform applicants, by letter, within 10 days of the end of the comment period for applications, whether the application is considered to be a Type 1 or Type 2 application, and the applicable service standard.

Commission staff has assessed the above application and considers it to be a Type 1 application.  Accordingly, it is expected that the Commission will issue interim or final determinations within four months of the close-of-record.
