Virginia began using NJUNS in 1997. Initially, only 3 member codes were created, that number has now grown to over 160. In the first year, 15 tickets were created, that yearly number now exceeds 6,000. Virginia was instrumental in the creation of the Pole Attachment module, which satisfies the requirements of the Federal and Local pole attachment policies. Along with company specific masks, which we helped to create, each company can utilize NJUNS to meet internal and external mandates. Several companies in the Commonwealth have included NJUNS in their Work Management Systems for tracking, creating and closing tickets and to produce customized reports. The Virginia Utility Coordinating Committee (VUCC) consists of 10 members ((Dominion, Verizon Virginia, Verizon South, American Electric Power, Century Link, Municipalities, Co-Op Association, Telecommunications Association, and Cable Association) and along with collecting and paying the maintenance fee, they ensure that all NJUNS users are kept informed and updated of enhancements or changes in NJUNS. Reporting to the VUCC are 5 area specific Local Utility Coordinating Committees who keep their areas apprised of changes and bring any concerns to the VUCC. NJUNS is the best tool that the majority of utilities in Virginia have found that meets required policies at a minimal cost.
NJUNS provides two Virginia user group meetings a year. This gives users an opportunity to discuss NJUNS and joint use related issues. The meeting dates and minutes of these meetings are posted within this portfolio.
