Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission Law Bureau Prosecutory Staff v. QCC, Inc.; Doc. No. C-00004123; A-310019
By the Commission:
On August 30, 2000, Law Bureau Prosecutory Staff instituted a complaint against QCC, Inc. a/k/a Quest Communications Corp. (the Respondent), an interexchange (IXC) reseller certificated at A-310019, for failure to remit payments for its monthly Universal Service Fund assessments by three or more months. Subsequently, on October 31, 2000, the Commission entered a Default Order that sustained the complaint and set forth a process to cancel Respondent's certificate of public convenience. The Default Order was published on November 18, 2000, at 30 Pa.B. 6040.
Since the issuance of the Default Order, the Respondent has paid the entire overdue amount, plus accumulated late payment charges, as well as its monthly assessments for the rest of the calendar year. In a separate letter dated November 6, 2000, to Secretary James McNulty, the company stated that the worksheets and other papers relating to its assessments were misplaced during an internal reorganization of its office, and it requested that the Default Order be rescinded. The Commission is satisfied that the non-payment was inadvertent and that future payments will be made on time; Therefore,
It Is Ordered That:
1. The Default Order entered October 31, 2000, at Docket No. C-00004123 is hereby rescinded.
2. The certificate of public convenience held by QCC, Inc. is hereby reinstated.
3. A copy of this Order be published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
