Effective immediately, BPAT is suspending making partial service offers of less than 12 months in duration to long-term firm requests as set forth in its current Partial Long-Term Firm Service Business Practice. BPAT is taking this action to reconsider its policy regarding these offers. BPAT expects the suspension to last approximately two months.
BPAT is rescinding current offers of partial service less than 1 year in duration unless customer(s) who received those offers want to accept them and take the service. Offers that have already been confirmed by the customer on BPA’s OASIS will not be rescinded.
The suspension does NOT apply to partial offers that are 1 year or longer in duration. Customers receiving these offers must confirm the counteroffer on OASIS or BPAT will remove them from the queue.
In the coming weeks, BPAT will solicit customer comment on its policy regarding partial offers that are less than 12 months in duration. Questions should be directed to the appropriate Transmission Account Executive or the BPAT Reservation Desk.
