Universal Lifeline Telephone Service Trust Administrative Committee (ULTSAC)

The ULTSAC is to function, pursuant to Pub. Util. Code § 277(a), as an advisory board providing advice and recommendations to the Commission on the development, implementation, and administration of the ULTS program. 

The ULTSAC is also charged with the responsibility of providing advice and recommendations to the Commission on the marketing program for the achievement of the ULTS goal of providing basic telephone service to all qualifying low-income households.  Advice and recommendations on marketing initiatives should be prioritized to reflect the most pressing needs of the ULTS program, including proposals for expenditure of 80% of the marketing budget on campaigns designed to bring basic telephone service to qualifying households currently without telephone service, and the remaining 20% aimed at closing the gap between the total number of households with phone service who qualify for the ULTS program and the number of such households that actually use the program.
