There are voluminous payments made to telecommunication vendors. Many of these payments are for very low dollars - including payments as low as 2¢. We identified the following seven vendors as having the highest volume of payments: Verizon, Verizon Wireless, AT&T, MCI Worldcom, Cingular Wireless, Frontier Communications, and Arch Wireless.
We worked with these seven vendors to identify more efficient payment options. Each of these vendors can provide a monthly master bill to an agency-designated location. Each vendor has different options and requirements for converting to master billing. We have detailed these options and contact information in attachments to this bulletin. The seven vendors are listed in the chart below along with their OGS "P" contract numbers.
We encourage agencies to contact their telecommunication vendors not listed in this bulletin, to take advantage of any master billing options they may be able to provide.
