The following are the currently effective versions 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).  The BPs apply to the NERC identified TSPs: CRCM, LAPT, WALC, WAPA, WASN.  Additional BPs specific only to an individual Region/TSP are also posted on that TSP's OASIS under the "Business Practices" folder.

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.

* These BPs outline submissions to be sent to "Regional Contact(s) as posted on OASIS".  Those specific WAPA Regional contact(s) are listed below, and transmittals should be sent to the contacts listed, as noted, for that specific Regional office.
#  This BP has limited applicability to WAPA's UGP Region, given its membership in SPP as noted above, and will not be applicable to certain services on the transmission facilities that UGP has transferred functional control of to SPP, and for which such service is offered under the SPP Tariff.
