BPA Outage Coordination Policy 

BPA has an Outage Coordination Policy that requires specific equipment to be coordinated within certain timelines. BPA needs planned outage information to support Operational Planning studies and will be requesting equipment and facility outage information from other utilities. This meets the RC West Outage Coordination Process for Balancing Authorities and Transmission Operators.
