  • On May 24, 2010, the Wireline Competition Bureau (WCB) announced the proposed North American Numbering Plan (NANP) Administration contribution factor and estimated fund size requirement for the fiscal year of July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011. (DA 10-924, CC 92-237) The NANP Administration fund is used to administer numbering resources, and is funded through contributions from the United States, Canada and the Caribbean. The proposed US contribution is approximately $5.5 million, which results in a factor amount of 0.0000181 per assessable dollar to meet the estimated fund size requirement. If the FCC does not act on this proposed NANP Administration funding within 14 days of this announcement, the proposed fund size and factor shall be deemed approved by the FCC and go into effect.
