Section 755.105 Execution and Administration of ITAP
a) Each carrier shall collect from its customers and remit to ITAC the monthly charge per subscriber line allowed by Section 13-703(c) of the Act and ordered by the Commission. The line charge identification shall be "IL Telecom Relay Service and Equipment" or an equivalent phrase that is not detrimental to persons with disabilities. The charge applies to all subscriber lines as defined in Section 755.10.
b) Each interconnected VoIP provider, directly or via another entity, shall collect from its customers and remit to ITAC the monthly assessment per subscription required by Section 13-703(f) of the Act and ordered by the Commission. Indirect remittances to ITAC shall indicate the interconnected VoIP provider on whose behalf assessments are being remitted. The assessment applies to all subscriptions as defined in Section 755.10. The requirements of this subsection (b) shall become effective January 1, 2011. For the period between January 1, 2011 and the effective date of the earliest Commission Order establishing an explicit assessment pursuant to Section 13-703(f) of the Act, each interconnected VoIP provider is required to collect from its customers and remit to ITAC a monthly assessment equal to the then effective line charge or centrex charge, as provided in Section 755.10.
c) The carriers or ITAC, on their behalf, may make voluntary or contractual agreements with businesses, agencies of local, state, or Federal government, organizations, and other third parties for provision or distribution of equipment, maintenance, warehousing, training, administration, or miscellaneous supports services as required to fulfill the goals of this program in a manner consistent with the intent and provisions of the Act and this Part.
d) The carriers or ITAC, on their behalf, shall administer the ITAP so as to take full advantage of any economies of scale that may exist by centralizing the provision of ITAP services listed in Section 755.100. However, the carriers or ITAC, on their behalf, shall provide sufficient regional centers to insure a reasonable access to ITAP by persons with disabilities.
e) The carriers may determine and propose to the Commission for approval, subject to the requirements of Section 7-101 and 7-102 of the Act [220 ILCS 5/7-101 and 7-102], a plan for joint execution and administration of ITAP. If the Commission approves a plan for joint execution and administration of ITAP through a not-for-profit corporation or other entity, all carriers shall join and participate fully in the plan for joint execution and administration.
