OMB notes that
the FCC did not take the requested steps to allow electronic filing
of the FCC 431 as stipulated in the Terms of Clearance issued when
the item was last approved in 1995. FCC's response, contained in
the Justification statement that accompanied this submission
reflects inadequate progress on making this happen. Therefore, OMB
will approve this collection for one year and fully expects the FCC
to adopt an electronic filing mechanism which hopefully include the
consolidated filings mentioned in the Justification statement.
Inventory as of this Action

the shared-funding program for the recovery of interstate
telecommunications relay services (TRS) costs. All common carriers
must contribute to the TRS fund and complete FCC form 431.
Providers seeking reimbursement must provide certain data. The
information will be used to administer the program.
