ORS 759.425 requires the Public Utility Commission of Oregon (PUC) to establish and implement a competitively neutral and nondiscriminatory Oregon Universal Service Fund (USF). The purpose of the fund is to ensure that basic telephone service is available at a reasonable and affordable rate. The PUC implemented the OUS Fund in September 2000. All certified carriers in Oregon are required to report and contribute to the fund quarterly. PUC designated Eligible Telecommunications Carriers (ETCs) receive disbursements from the OUS Fund monthly. The PUC contracts with Solix, Inc. to administer the fund.
For questions about reporting and payment schedules and other administrative questions please contact the fund administrator:
