Cost Verification Process
The Cost Verification Process for the Slice True-Up Adjustment Charge is a new annual public process developed under the Tiered Rates Methodology (TRM) that will permit Slice customers, other BPA customers, and other interested parties to review the Slice True-Up Adjustment Charge and to assess whether BPA has correctly calculated the amount of each expense or revenue credit subject to the Slice True-Up Adjustment, and whether the final Slice True-Up Adjustment contains only those expenses and revenue credits permitted to be included in, and does not contain any expenses or revenue credits excluded from, the Slice Rate pursuant to the TRM; see section 2.7.5.1 and Attachment A of the TRM.

See our Background page for more information.
