ARMIS Filing Requirements for Carriers

Historically, the first submission of each ARMIS report, except the 43-07, was filed one quarter (three months) after the end of the reporting period. The 43-07 was to be filed two quarters (six months) after the end of the reporting period.

Currently, all of the reports are filed annually, and reports are due on April 1 of a given year, for prior year data. Subsequent submissions correcting previously filed data should be filed as soon as the correction is identified.

In order to determine which ILECs will normally file which ARMIS reports for which COSA codes, it is necessary to identify the ILEC's status in three dimensions: revenues (at or above the current threshold, or below), corporate structure (whether a study area, operating company or holding company, singly or in some combination of these classifications), and price cap status (mandatory price cap carrier, elective price cap carrier, non price cap carrier). Once these attributes are known, the normal filing requirements of an ILEC are determined, and are summarized in the charts, below.

Commission actions taken in the AT&T Cost Assignment Forbearance Order, the ARMIS Forbearance Order, the ARMIS Financial Reporting Forbearance Order, and the USTelecom Forbearance Long Order caused major revisions to ARMIS filing requirements begining with reporting year 2008. Filing requirements in effect prior to the forbearance orders are depicted in the third set of charts below, captioned Reporting Years 2007 and Earlier. Revised filing requirements following the forbearance orders are depicted in the first and second set of charts below, captioned Reporting Years 2010 through 2014 and Reporting Years 2008 and 2009, respectively.
