PUD serves as the statutory administrator for the OUSF.
The OUSF provides funding, in coordination with Federal
Programs, for qualified Oklahoma schools, libraries,
healthcare facilities, and rural telecommunications
companies. The fund also supports Primary Universal
Services to rural Oklahoma.
PUD provides onsite assistance across
the state to eligible entities. PUD also audits all
requests for funding to ensure competitive bidding and
robust usage of the fund. These efforts over the
last few years have resulted in a major reduction to the
overall fund while support service levels have
dramatically increased. This process has been a
major success for the OCC and the State.
