Documents on this subject can be found here

BPA will discuss changes to the previously proposed framework and the process for moving forward with the Statement of Intent.

Summary for discussion: Proposed Tier 2 Vintage Rate Framework

Purchase Period for Rate: Power at Tier 2 Vintage Rate between FY 2015-2019, with FY 2015-2018 as a back-up. Instead of FY 2014-2018.

Reservation price: TBD

Eligibility: Flat purchase amount across FY 2015-2019 up to FY 2015 forecast Above-RHWM Loads greater than 1 aMW, calculated by June 1, 2011, and rounded down to the next whole average megawatt. Instead of up to FY 2014 forecast Tier 2 Short-Term rate amounts.

Default: Tier 2 Short-term rate or Unspecified Resource Amounts depending on election made in SOI and concurrently made for 9/30/11 election deadline. Instead of Tier 2 Short-Term amounts only.

Process: Fast track with intended release of 6/1/11 and customer signing deadline of 6/30/11. SOI will state that AHWM load election is made for amount subscribed to in SOI at time of signing SOI. Additional commitment: BPA commits to continue to take the time this summer to develop with interested parties a second vintage rate option that would address some of the other comments received that were ultimately not incorporated in this fast track vintage rate alternative.

Newly added part of process:

Confidentiality: Eligible customers interested in entering into negotiations for the final SOI will be asked to sign a confidentiality/non-disclosure agreement as a condition of participating in those negotiations.
