SUPPLEMENTARY INFROMATION:
    1. The Commission is proposing to revise the Electric Quarterly 
Report (EQR) Data Dictionary to clarify the definition of Contract 
Commencement Date in Field 22.

Background

    2. On April 25, 2002, the Commission issued Order No. 2001, a Final 
Rule establishing revised public utility filing requirements.\1\ This 
rule revised the Commission's filing requirements to require companies 
subject to the Commission's regulations under section 205 of the 
Federal Power Act \2\ to file quarterly reports that: (1) Provide data 
identifying the utility on whose behalf the report is being filed (ID 
Data); (2) summarize pertinent data about the utility's currently 
effective contracts (Contract Data); and (3) summarize data about 
wholesale power sales the utility made during the reporting period 
(Transaction Data). The requirement to file EQRs replaced the 
requirement to file quarterly transaction reports summarizing a 
utility's market-based rate transactions and sales agreements that 
conformed to the utility's tariff.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    3. In Order No. 2001, the Commission also adopted a new section in 
its regulations, 18 CFR 35.10b, which requires that the EQRs are to be 
prepared in conformance with the Commission's software and guidance 
posted and available from the Commission website. This obviates the 
need to revise 18 CFR 35.10b to implement revisions to the software and

[[Page 30544]]

guidance. Since the issuance of Order No. 2001, as need has arisen, the 
Commission has issued orders to resolve questions raised by EQR users 
and has directed Staff to issue additional guidance.
    4. On September 24, 2007, the Commission issued Order No. 2001-G, 
adopting an EQR Data Dictionary that collected in one document the 
definitions of certain terms and values used in filing EQR data 
(previously provided in Commission orders and in guidance materials 
posted at the Commission's website) and providing formal definitions 
for fields that were previously undefined. On December 20, 2007, the 
Commission issued Order No. 2001-H, which addressed a pending request 
for rehearing and clarifying the information to be reported in several 
EQR data fields.
    5. In Order 2001-H, the Commission defined Contract Commencement 
Date, (Field 22 in the Contract Data section of the EQR), as:

    The date the terms of the contract reported in the EQR were 
effective. If the terms reported in the Contract Data section of the 
EQR became effective or if service under those terms began on 
multiple dates (i.e.: due to an amendment), the date to be reported 
as the Commencement Date is the date when service began pursuant to 
the most recent amendment to the terms reported in the Contract Data 
section of the EQR.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ Order 2001-H, Data Dictionary at Field 22. There were no 
requests for rehearing or appeal filed in response to Order No. 
2001-H.

    6. On February 26, 2008, the Commission held an EQR Technical 
Conference to ``review the EQR Data Dictionary and address questions 
from EQR users.'' \4\ During this technical conference, Contract 
Commencement Date was a topic of considerable discussion.

Conference, January 7, 2008 (http://www.ferc.gov/EventCalendar/Files/20080108075834-RM01-8-000TC.pdf).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    7. On March 3, 2008, the Commission issued notice of a proposal to 
revise the EQR Data Dictionary to clarify the requirement to report all 
ancillary service transactions, consistent with the Commission's 
decision in Order No. 697 \5\ that information about third party sales 
of ancillary services at market-based rates should be reported in EQR 
filings, rather than being reported on a separate OASIS-like Internet 
site.\6\

    8. On April 10, 2008, in its response to the March 2008 Notice, 
Edison Electric Institute (EEI) included comments related to the 
definition of Commencement Date in Field 22.\7\ Those issues are more 
pertinent to the notice we are issuing in the instant subdocket (i.e., 
RM08-1-010) than to the March 2008 Notice. We address those comments 
here.

Discussion

    9. In Order No. 2001-H, the Commission clarified the information 
that should be reported in the Contract Execution Date and Contract 
Commencement Date fields. The Commission's findings on the information 
that should be reported in the Contract Execution Date and Contract 
Commencement Date fields was based on commenters' argument that 
Contract Execution Date (Field No. 21) should reflect the date the 
contract was originally signed.
    10. In Order No. 2001-G, the Commission determined that the date a 
contract was ``materially amended'' was to be reported as the Contract 
Execution Date. Commenters argued that it would be helpful if, despite 
contract revisions, the Contract Execution Date would remain the date 
the contract was first executed, for the entire life of the 
contract.\8\ It was argued that this would help EQR users understand 
exactly what contract was being referenced. In response to these 
concerns, in Order No. 2001-H, the Commission was persuaded to have the 
Contract Execution Date stay unchanged for the life of the contract.\9\ 
In addition, given the Commission's interest in tracking the date of 
contract revisions, Order No. 2001-H provided that amendment dates 
would be reported in the Contract Commencement Date field. Thus, the 
Commission determined in Order No. 2001-H that Contract Commencement 
Date should report ``[t]he date the terms of the contract reported in 
the EQR were effective.'' \10\ The terms of each contract reported in 
the EQR are represented by the thirty-one fields in each record of the 
Contract Data Section. The Commission determined that any changes in 
the reporting of these thirty-one fields would require a change in the 
Contract Commencement Date field.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    11. At the February 2008 Technical Conference, Commission staff 
highlighted for EQR users the import of the changes adopted by the 
Commission in Order Nos. 2001-G and 2001-H. Although Order No. 2001-H 
was unchallenged when issued, some filers expressed concern at the 
February 2008 Technical Conference about the portion of the definition 
of Contract Commencement Date that describes using ``the date when 
service began pursuant to the most recent amendment.'' In addition, 
several participants were concerned that it would be difficult to 
identify the exact date when ``service'' begins.
    12. The Contract Commencement Date is intended to reflect the 
effective date of either the contract or the most recent amendment. The 
language in question was added for clarity in two respects. First, 
where no effective date is provided in the contract or the amendment, 
the EQR filer should use the date service began under the contract as a 
substitute. Second, if there have been a number of amendments to the 
contract, the filer should use the date of the amendment that accounted 
for the most recent change in the terms reported in the EQR.
    13. In its comments on the March 2008 Notice, EEI encouraged the 
Commission to confirm that Field 22 needs to be completed in 
conformance with the new definition only for contracts amended after 
January 1, 2008. EEI also suggests that the Commission should refine 
the definition of Contract Commencement Date so that revisions to 
Customer Company Name, Company DUNS Number, or Customer DUNS Number 
would not trigger a need for a revised Contract Commencement Date. EEI 
also suggests that Field 22 be given a different name that would better 
reflect the information that would be reported in this field.\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ EEI suggests that Field 22 be labeled as ``Latest 
Modification Date.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    14. As a result of the discussions at the EQR Technical Conference 
and the points raised in the EEI comments in Docket No. RM01-8-009, the 
Commission invites comments on the following proposed definition of 
Contract Commencement Date:

    The date the terms of the contract reported in the Contract 
Products section of the EQR (Field Nos. 26 through 45) were 
effective. If the terms reported in the Contract Data section of the 
EQR became effective on multiple dates (i.e.: due to one or more 
amendments), the date to be reported as the Commencement Date is the 
date the most recent amendment became effective. If the contract or 
the most recent reported amendment does not have an effective date, 
the date when service began pursuant to the contract or most recent 
reported amendment may be used. If the terms of the contract 
reported in the Contract Products section

[[Page 30545]]

have not been amended since January 1, 2008, the initial date the 
contract became effective may be used.

    15. The new definition clarifies the Commission's intention 
regarding the effective date of amendment. It also limits the types of 
changes that would require a new date to those affecting the products 
and services under the contract (the terms provided in Field Nos. 26 
through 45); changes in the name of the counterparties to the contract, 
Field Nos. 15 and 16, for example, are not included. The new definition 
also allows the original contract commencement date to be used if the 
contract has not been amended since January 1, 2008, to simplify 
compliance with the revised requirement.
    16. The Commission also invites comments regarding renaming Field 
22 to ``Commencement Date of Contract Terms'' to reflect this revised 
definition.
