SUPPLEMENTARY INFROMATION: 1. The Commission is proposing to revise the Electric Quarterly

Report (EQR) Data Dictionary to clarify the definition of Contract

Commencement Date in Field 22.

Background 2. On April 25, 2002, the Commission issued Order No. 2001, a Final

Rule establishing revised public utility filing requirements.\1\ This rule revised the Commission's filing requirements to require companies subject to the Commission's regulations under section 205 of the

Federal Power Act \2\ to file quarterly reports that: (1) Provide data identifying the utility on whose behalf the report is being filed (ID

Data); (2) summarize pertinent data about the utility's currently effective contracts (Contract Data); and (3) summarize data about wholesale power sales the utility made during the reporting period

(Transaction Data). The requirement to file EQRs replaced the requirement to file quarterly transaction reports summarizing a utility's market-based rate transactions and sales agreements that conformed to the utility's tariff.

3. In Order No. 2001, the Commission also adopted a new section in its regulations, 18 CFR 35.10b, which requires that the EQRs are to be prepared in conformance with the Commission's software and guidance posted and available from the Commission website. This obviates the need to revise 18 CFR 35.10b to implement revisions to the software and

Page 30544

guidance. Since the issuance of Order No. 2001, as need has arisen, the

Commission has issued orders to resolve questions raised by EQR users and has directed Staff to issue additional guidance. 4. On September 24, 2007, the Commission issued Order No. 2001-G, adopting an EQR Data Dictionary that collected in one document the definitions of certain terms and values used in filing EQR data

(previously provided in Commission orders and in guidance materials posted at the Commission's website) and providing formal definitions for fields that were previously undefined. On December 20, 2007, the

Commission issued Order No. 2001-H, which addressed a pending request for rehearing and clarifying the information to be reported in several

EQR data fields. 5. In Order 2001-H, the Commission defined Contract Commencement

Date, (Field 22 in the Contract Data section of the EQR), as:

The date the terms of the contract reported in the EQR were effective. If the terms reported in the Contract Data section of the

EQR became effective or if service under those terms began on multiple dates (i.e.: due to an amendment), the date to be reported as the Commencement Date is the date when service began pursuant to the most recent amendment to the terms reported in the Contract Data section of the EQR.\3\

\3\ Order 2001-H, Data Dictionary at Field 22. There were no requests for rehearing or appeal filed in response to Order No. 2001-H. 6. On February 26, 2008, the Commission held an EQR Technical

Conference to ``review the EQR Data Dictionary and address questions from EQR users.'' \4\ During this technical conference, Contract

Commencement Date was a topic of considerable discussion.

\4\ See Notice of Electric Quarterly Reports Technical

Conference, January 7, 2008 (http://www.ferc.gov/EventCalendar/

Files/20080108075834-RM01-8-000TC.pdf).

7. On March 3, 2008, the Commission issued notice of a proposal to revise the EQR Data Dictionary to clarify the requirement to report all ancillary service transactions, consistent with the Commission's decision in Order No. 697 \5\ that information about third party sales of ancillary services at market-based rates should be reported in EQR filings, rather than being reported on a separate OASIS-like Internet site.\6\

8. On April 10, 2008, in its response to the March 2008 Notice,

Edison Electric Institute (EEI) included comments related to the definition of Commencement Date in Field 22.\7\ Those issues are more pertinent to the notice we are issuing in the instant subdocket (i.e.,

RM08-1-010) than to the March 2008 Notice. We address those comments here.

\7\ EEI Comments, Docket No. RM08-1-009 (filed April 10, 2007).

Discussion 9. In Order No. 2001-H, the Commission clarified the information that should be reported in the Contract Execution Date and Contract

Commencement Date fields. The Commission's findings on the information that should be reported in the Contract Execution Date and Contract

Commencement Date fields was based on commenters' argument that

Contract Execution Date (Field No. 21) should reflect the date the contract was originally signed. 10. In Order No. 2001-G, the Commission determined that the date a contract was ``materially amended'' was to be reported as the Contract

Execution Date. Commenters argued that it would be helpful if, despite contract revisions, the Contract Execution Date would remain the date the contract was first executed, for the entire life of the contract.\8\ It was argued that this would help EQR users understand exactly what contract was being referenced. In response to these concerns, in Order No. 2001-H, the Commission was persuaded to have the

Contract Execution Date stay unchanged for the life of the contract.\9\

In addition, given the Commission's interest in tracking the date of contract revisions, Order No. 2001-H provided that amendment dates would be reported in the Contract Commencement Date field. Thus, the

Commission determined in Order No. 2001-H that Contract Commencement

Date should report ``[t]he date the terms of the contract reported in the EQR were effective.'' \10\ The terms of each contract reported in the EQR are represented by the thirty-one fields in each record of the

Contract Data Section. The Commission determined that any changes in the reporting of these thirty-one fields would require a change in the

Contract Commencement Date field.

11. At the February 2008 Technical Conference, Commission staff highlighted for EQR users the import of the changes adopted by the

Commission in Order Nos. 2001-G and 2001-H. Although Order No. 2001-H was unchallenged when issued, some filers expressed concern at the

February 2008 Technical Conference about the portion of the definition of Contract Commencement Date that describes using ``the date when service began pursuant to the most recent amendment.'' In addition, several participants were concerned that it would be difficult to identify the exact date when ``service'' begins. 12. The Contract Commencement Date is intended to reflect the effective date of either the contract or the most recent amendment. The language in question was added for clarity in two respects. First, where no effective date is provided in the contract or the amendment, the EQR filer should use the date service began under the contract as a substitute. Second, if there have been a number of amendments to the contract, the filer should use the date of the amendment that accounted for the most recent change in the terms reported in the EQR. 13. In its comments on the March 2008 Notice, EEI encouraged the

Commission to confirm that Field 22 needs to be completed in conformance with the new definition only for contracts amended after

January 1, 2008. EEI also suggests that the Commission should refine the definition of Contract Commencement Date so that revisions to

Customer Company Name, Company DUNS Number, or Customer DUNS Number would not trigger a need for a revised Contract Commencement Date. EEI also suggests that Field 22 be given a different name that would better reflect the information that would be reported in this field.\11\

\11\ EEI suggests that Field 22 be labeled as ``Latest

Modification Date.''

14. As a result of the discussions at the EQR Technical Conference and the points raised in the EEI comments in Docket No. RM01-8-009, the

Commission invites comments on the following proposed definition of

Contract Commencement Date:

The date the terms of the contract reported in the Contract

Products section of the EQR (Field Nos. 26 through 45) were effective. If the terms reported in the Contract Data section of the

EQR became effective on multiple dates (i.e.: due to one or more amendments), the date to be reported as the Commencement Date is the date the most recent amendment became effective. If the contract or the most recent reported amendment does not have an effective date, the date when service began pursuant to the contract or most recent reported amendment may be used. If the terms of the contract reported in the Contract Products section

Page 30545

have not been amended since January 1, 2008, the initial date the contract became effective may be used. 15. The new definition clarifies the Commission's intention regarding the effective date of amendment. It also limits the types of changes that would require a new date to those affecting the products and services under the contract (the terms provided in Field Nos. 26 through 45); changes in the name of the counterparties to the contract,

Field Nos. 15 and 16, for example, are not included. The new definition also allows the original contract commencement date to be used if the contract has not been amended since January 1, 2008, to simplify compliance with the revised requirement. 16. The Commission also invites comments regarding renaming Field 22 to ``Commencement Date of Contract Terms'' to reflect this revised definition.

Comment Procedures 17. The Commission invites interested persons to submit comments on the matters and issues proposed in this notice, including any related matters or alternative proposals that commenters may wish to discuss.
