MFI-57 Remote Technology Centers

This document serves as a reference for Operators who monitor and/or control joint operations from a remote technology center (RTC).  It is recommended as a guide for (1) identifying what qualifies as an RTC, (2) identifying the costs, such as labor, facility, and equipment costs, of an RTC that can be charged to the Joint Account, and (3) developing an allocation basis for charging the RTC costs to the Joint Account.

Chargeability is analyzed for each of the COPAS Model Form Accounting Procedures and concludes that RTC costs can be charged using the Equipment and Facilities Furnished by Operator, Affiliate, and Services provisions of the various accounting procedures.  61 pages.  2021.
