Approved For Release 200210613 : CIA-RDP80-0047300200020019-2 13 June 1977 25X1 A Pt IORANDUM FOR: Executive Officer to the DDA THROUGH : Thomas B. Yale Director of Finance 25X1 A FROM : Chief, Monetary Division, Office of Finance 25X1 25X1 25X1 25X1 SUBJECT : Occasions of Use of Non-Published Telephone Lines in Lieu of Agency WATS Lines I. There are many times during each day when it is seemingly impossible to obtain a WATS line. 2. Prior to installation of vIATS the average monthly cost of telephone calls via "non-pub" was approxi- mately $140. Therefore, decrease in monthly cost of outside telephone calls since WATS is in excess of $100. 3. 0 We are required to initiate numerous payments on a priority basis, through use of previously established telephone codes; therefore, when the WATS lines are unobtain- able, we revert to the "non-pub" line so as to effectively carry out our duties. 4. Also, frequently we find that it is impossible to clearly carry on a conversation over the WATS line. We revert to the "non-pub" line so that no misunder- standing occurs in the information being relayed as it could be a very costly transaction. 25X 25X1A 25X1 Approved For Release 2002/06/13: CIA-RDP - 019-2 Appro 7eq 00200020019-2 TRA MITTAL SLIP 19 August 1977 Appro 00200020019-2 ''19r Rele ~LIL2/06/13 : CIA-R~$TN-2 TO: ROOM NO. BUILDING REMARKS: Hi - Thank you for letting me see the attached. Apparently, some personnel are very much aware of the problem! I will be glad to destroy as you noted, but wonder: Wouldn't it be a good idea to pass this to the Telephone Facilities Branch with a note such as: "FYI -- to let you know that we are aware of the problem and are attempting to correct it."?

As noted on the attached memo we have greatly reduced our use of the non-pub line. We give the watts lines a fair chance, calling at least 3 times for priority items before reverting to non-pub. On non priority items we continue watts until we obtain an open line, usually a very frustrating length of time. 1+,. If we were to average the time attempting nth obtain an open watts line the sayings of $17.10 would vanish.

Note the statement on the reverse of each bill. Any assistance to correct this situation will be appreciated. Att: 1 Monthly Service Statement F=ROM: EO-DDA ROOM NO.
