Cost Verification Process for FY 2015 Slice True-Up Adjustment Charge

BPA has posted for public review and comment the Composite Cost Pool True-Up Table and the Slice True-Up Adjustment, which reflects the actual expenses and revenue credits for FY 2015. BPA will allow 15 Business Days for the identification of any Slice True-Up Adjustment issue for consideration for BPA for inclusion in the Agreed Upon Procedures (AUPs), including questions regarding the sum of adjusted Tier One Cost Allocators (TOCAs), the actual Unused Rate Period High Water Mark (RHWM) credit, and the Slice Percentages used in this calculation. AUPs are defined as services that fall under the category of miscellaneous financial services provided to BPA by an external auditor that are covered contractually between BPA and an external auditor. After the identification of such issues, BPA will draft the tasks to be included in the AUPs to address such issues, if any, no later than Dec. 18, 2015. The FY 2015 Composite cost pool savings when compared to the Rate Case forecast is $144.721 million. As a result the FY 2015 Slice True-Up Adjustment that is applicable to Slice customers is a total of ($40.408) million, which is a credit. For more information, see Attachment A of the Tiered Rates Methodology, or click on the website listed below.

Focus 2028

BPA would like to hear from you about future Focus 2028 discussion topics. After our Nov. 4, 2015, kickoff, we identified topics for the February 2016 forum. During the Nov. 18, 2015, scoping discussion, we heard your input and feedback on other potential topics. We know that some ideas are more easily shared in writing than on a conference call or in a regional meeting. As a recap, draft topics for the February 2016 forum include: financial health metrics and policies; cost management practices; and program-specific topics spanning Fish and Wildlife, Energy Efficiency, Transmission and investments in the federal hydropower system. Please take this opportunity to share additional topics, landscape trends or threats to the energy industry for us to consider in scoping the Focus 2028 discussions. Your input will better enable us to identify opportunities, timing and forums for future policy, program and funding decisions.

Melvin R. Sampson Hatchery, Yakima Basin Coho Project

BPA will be preparing an environmental impact statement to analyze the effects of the Confederated Tribes of the Yakama Nation’s proposed Melvin R. Sampson Hatchery. The hatchery would be located on the 50-acre Holmes Ranch property that is owned by the Yakama Nation and located in Kittitas County, Wash. The project would include construction of hatchery and administration buildings, fish holding and spawning facilities, a water intake pump using an existing irrigation canal, three new groundwater wells, a waste treatment pond and two residences for hatchery staff. Hatchery operations would include incubation and rearing of up to 200,000 juvenile coho salmon for release in the Yakima and Naches rivers. The goal of the project is to enhance fish populations available for harvest and to aid in re-establishing a naturally spawning coho salmon population in the Yakima Basin. Your input will help us better assess the environmental impacts of this proposed project. Please share your thoughts and opinions and tell us what topics should be considered as part of the environmental analysis.
