ALLTEL COMMUNICATIONS One Allied Drive Little Rock, Arkansas 72202 Steve Meradith 402-436-4160 402-436-4041 fax email: email@example.com September 12, 2003 Nebraska Public Service Commission Attention: Mr. Jeff Pursley 300 The Atrium, 1200 N. Street Lincoln, Nebraska 68508 Re: In the Matter of the Nebraska Public Service Commission, on its own motion, to investigate the audit requirements related to the Nebraska Universal Service Fund (Application No. NUSF-33/PI-68) Dear Mr. Pursley, On November 26, 2002, the Nebraska Public Service Commission ("Commission") initiated the above referenced proceeding to investigate audit requirements related to the Nebraska Universal Service Fund ("NUSF"). ALLTEL Nebraska, Inc. ("ALLTEL") filed comments in this proceeding and participated in the workshop on March 11, 2003. Thereafter, on March 25, 2003, the Commission issued Progression Order No. 1 and found that several NUSF issues merited further investigation. Pursuant to further discussions among the parties, the Commission issued its Progression Order No. 2, requesting that interested parties file written comments on the current proposals including Attachment A to the Order. As a general statement, ALLTEL supports the Commission's proposals set forth in Progression Order No. 2 and suggests only one revision to Attachment A. Currently, page 3 of Attachment A, Number 8, reads, "We are forwarding all supporting documentation obtained during under the procedures listed above to the Commission." ALLTEL suggests that this sentence be amended to read, "We are forwarding all supporting documentation obtained in connection with the procedures listed above to the Commission." ALLTEL appreciates the opportunity to comment on this matter and hopes that the Commission will take this suggested change into consideration. Sincerely, Steve Meradith Staff Manager – State Government Affairs
