  22. 22. Daily Production process Continued. <ul><li>Each daily production report is completed by the field staff using a unique code for each line item or task completed. </li></ul><ul><li>Additional information like map number, address and other location information like span footage are recorded to identify the exact location for work verification. </li></ul><ul><li>As built field maps are completed by the field crew completing the work that will be attached with the daily in addition to locate tickets, work issuance forms, completion reports, TDR’s, Sweep traces, channel scans or any other documentation required. </li></ul><ul><li>The production daily is returned to the office where the admin staff verifies that each line item is accompanied by the proper bill code. All line items are added correctly. Admin staff verify that all other portions of the daily report are completed properly. </li></ul><ul><li>Then the daily is submitted by the admin staff to the project coordinator. The coordinator verifies that the work that was completed was in fact work issued to the field crew. And that the proper documentation is attached with the daily production report. </li></ul><ul><li>A copy of completed work is sent to the field with ICC Broadband LLC QC staff where quality control inspections are completed. A QC report is completed and filed and any deficiencies are corrected immediately. </li></ul>
  23. 23. Daily Production process Continued. <ul><li>Once the project coordinator has verified the daily production report and backup documentation it is signed by the project coordinator as received from the field with proper documentation. (All work is subject to QC by the customer and is not considered accepted until such time as the customer signs off on the completed work and final QC) </li></ul><ul><li>The daily is returned to the office admin staff and assigned a unique stamp number that identifies that production daily for billing so that no duplication can take place. no production daily is processed (invoiced or paid) that is not accompanied with a stamp number. </li></ul><ul><li>In addition each daily production report has the following billing and location information. PO number, node location, task code, system and Location, Project Number and any other information requested by the customer. </li></ul><ul><li>Backup copies of all documentation are filed by ICC Broadband LLC in the event that the customer copy is lost or damaged. </li></ul>
  24. 24. Invoicing <ul><li>ICC Broadband LLC weekly completes and sends to the customer an invoice based on that week ending keyed production reports. </li></ul><ul><li>The invoice is sent to the customer accompanied by a copy of the daily production report, as built maps and other required documentation. </li></ul><ul><li>A copy of the invoice and all backup documentation is filed by ICC Broadband LLC incase the original is lost or damaged. </li></ul><ul><li>ICC Broadband LLC completes aging reports and tracks all invoices submitted to the customer. The aging report indicate when an invoice has been misplaced giving ICC Broadband LLC and the customer the opportunity to correct the issue before the end of the project budget life. </li></ul><ul><li>ICC Broadband LLC also tracks Work In Progress against open PO’s to prevent PO cost over run. </li></ul>
  25. 25. Fiber Verification program <ul><li>ICC Broadband LLC proposes to provide fiber optic plant verification and identification as well as fiber splicing verification and design services to facilitate the accurate identification of all optical plant.
