(1) There will be two ways for parties to electronically file
applications with the Commission: batch and interactive.
(i) Batch filing. Batch filing involves data transmission in a single
action. Batch filers will follow a set Commission format for entering
data. Batch filers will then send, via file transfer protocol, batches
of data to the Commission for compiling. COALS will compile such
filings overnight and respond the next business day with a return or
dismissal of any defective filings. Thus, batch filers will not receive
immediate correction from the system as they enter the information.
(ii) Interactive filing. Interactive filing involves data transmission
with screen-by-screen prompting from the Commission's COALS system.
Interactive filers will receive prompts from the system identifying
data entries outside the acceptable ranges of data for the individual
fields at the time the data entry is made.
(2) Attachments to applications must be uploaded along with the
electronically filed application whenever possible.

uploaded as attachments to the application whenever possible. The
attachment should be uploaded via COALS in Adobe Acrobat Portable
