No person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information subject to the PRA that does not display a valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number.

BOCs are required to post their CEI plans and amendments on their publicly accessible Internet sites. The requirement extends to all CEI plans for intraLATA information services, telemessaging, or alarm monitoring Start Printed Page 6711services, and for new or amended payphone services. If the BOC receives a good faith request for a plan from someone who does not have Internet access, the BOC must notify that person where a paper copy of the plan is available for public inspection. The CEI plans will be used to ensure that BOCs comply with Commission policies and regulations safeguarding against potential anticompetitive behavior by the BOCs in the provision of information services.
