2014 Integrated Program Review
The IPR process allows interested parties to see all relevant FCRPS expense and capital spending level estimates in the same forum. The IPR occurs every two years, or just prior to each rate case, and provides participants with an opportunity to review and comment on BPA's program level estimates prior to spending levels being set for inclusion in rate cases.
What Happened in 2012
The 2012 IPR offered a new structure designed to maximize the effectiveness of information sharing while minimizing participants time and travel.  The new structure featured a comprehensive initial publication and program specific discussion meetings based on stakeholder requests. BPA also hosted a preliminary IPR meeting in support of stakeholder requests to hear thoughts from the region in advance of developing initial IPR spending estimates. The new structure emphasized expense review by shifting review of 10-year capital forecasts and draft asset strategies to the Capital Investment Review (CIR), held prior to the IPR.
What's Coming in 2014
  • ​Based on positive feedback received from the 2012 IPR, BPA will once again be hosting a meeting with the region in advance of the IPR process regarding current regional issues and strategic drivers influencing BPA's program spending. This meeting is currently scheduled for January 8, 2014 from 2pm - 5pm; additional information can be found in the invitation letter to the region. Material will be posted on this site in advance of the meeting.
  • BPA will host the Capital Investment Review (CIR), separate from and prior to the 2014 IPR. As a direct result, draft asset strategies and long-term capital forecasts will not be addressed in the IPR.
  • The IPR public process is expected to begin in May 2014 and will last approximately 6-8 weeks.
  • Information, again, will be centralized into one comprehensive initial publication.
  • Participants will be offered a two week window following release of the initial publication to provide clarifying questions or request discussion meetings targeting specific program areas.
  • Program specific discussion meetings will be held over a series of 2-3 days in June, if there is sufficient interest by participants.
  • A public comment period will be provided to collect feedback and suggestions to help inform near-term capital and expense spending forecasts (FY 2016-17) for inclusion in the upcoming BP-16 initial proposal.
