OATI will be enabling new OASIS functionality for short-term Redirects to comply with FERC policy adopted in Order 676-I. The OASIS system changes will take effect on Wednesday, September 15, 2021 at 1:00pm PPT.
The changes are outlined in Business Practice version 25 of Redirect of Transmission Service. FERC requires that short-term Redirects to be treated differently depending on whether the parent reservation of the Redirect has reached its conditional reservation deadline (per Section 13.2 of the BPA Open Access Transmission Tariff) by the time the Redirect is confirmed on OASIS. The system changes enforce this FERC policy for short-term Redirects.
