  (Posted for 10 business day comment period)

(Last Update: February 27, 2020)

The following are the currently proposed draft versions (posted for the 10 business day comment period) of the Business Practices (BPs) that are common and identical across all of WAPA's Regional Offices, which includes (DSW, RMR, SNR, and UGP - See Note 1 for UGP).  The BPs apply to the NERC identified TSPs: CRCM, LAPT, WALC, WAPA, WASN.  Additional draft BPs specific only to an individual Region/TSP are also posted on that TSP's OASIS under the "Business Practices" folder.


Please submit any comments or questions on the proposed draft BP(s) by the due date shown above to your specific WAPA Regional contact(s):
Note 1.  The UGP Region joined the Southwest Power Pool, Inc. (SPP) as a transmission owner and transferred functional control of all of its eligible transmission facilities to SPP on October 1, 2015.  Transmission service and certain other services over those UGP Regional transmission facilities are available solely under the SPP Open Access Transmission Tariff (SPP Tariff).  Ancillary services offered by the UGP Region as a Balancing Authority operator are also solely available under the SPP Tariff.  Therefore, certain WAPA BPs may not be currently applicable, or have limited applicability, in the UGP Region.
