Conference Call 7/03/97
Due to lack of support as evidenced by the lack of participating from
service providers during the Weekly Michigan SPOC Team conference
I am asking Larry Vasquez to escalate to the Steering Committee in an
to determine which service providers intend to perform inter-company
in the Detroit MSA.
On Thursday June 26, 1997 the Detroit Single Point Of Contact
was held via conference bridge, 1-800-593-xxxx passcode "xxxx", at
The next meeting will be Friday 7/11 9:00 AM CDT at the Ameritech

is 312-814-8097. This meeting will be held in conjunction with the
Detroit Implementation Team Meeting to ensure that the Implementation
Team and the SPOC Team are in

SPOC Team Weekly Conference Calls.
As you can determine from the attendance listed above. Of those
providers that will be in the Detroit MSA and that are taking an
part in the SPOC Team meetings is
I am asking Larry Vasquez, Chair of the Implementation Team to take
to attempt to gain support for the testing effort in Detroit. If

Manager, Dick Dowd.
Bob Bartenstein reported that the earliest date that Detroit based
switches would be ready to actually port test customers is currently
Bob didn't rule out the possibility of submitting LSR's for porting
to 9/8 as long as the due date was
not prior to 9/8.
Being that the Michigan PUC mandated that Detroit would turn up
service at the same time as Chicago, 9/26, this would leave very
time for inter-company testing. It is not known what amount of
each participant will wish to perform at this time so there is only a
possibility of a Jeopardy. It is possible that service providers will
with to port one or two TNs and then perform a couple of call through
on these TNs. This could probably be taken care of in a two working
window. We must keep a close eye
on this area.
