[Docket No. RM98-1-000]

Regulations Governing Off-the-Record Communications; Public 

July 26, 2002.
    This constitutes notice, in accordance with 18 CFR 385.2201(h), of 
the receipt of exempt and prohibited off-the-record communications.
    Order No. 607 (64 FR 51222, September 22, 1999) requires Commission 
decisional employees, who make or receive an exempt or a prohibited 
off-the-record communication relevant to the merits of a contested on-
the-record proceeding, to deliver a copy of the communication, if 
written, or a summary of the substance of any oral communication, to 
the Secretary.
    Prohibited communications will be included in a public, non-
decisional file associated with, but not part of, the decisional record 
of the proceeding. Unless the Commission determines that the prohibited 
communication and any responses thereto should become part of the 
decisional record, the prohibited off-the-record communication will not 
be considered by the Commission in reaching its decision. Parties to a 
proceeding may seek the opportunity to respond to any facts or 
contentions made in a prohibited off-the-record communication, and may 
request that the Commission place the prohibited communication and 
responses thereto in the decisional record. The Commission will grant 
such requests only when it determines that fairness so requires. Any 
person identified below as having made a prohibited off-the-record 
communication should serve the document on all parties listed on the 
official service list for the applicable proceeding in accordance with 
Rule 2010, 18 CFR 385.2010.
    Exempt off-the-record communications will be included in the 
decisional record of the proceeding, unless the communication was with 
a cooperating agency as described by 40 CFR 1501.6, made under 18 CFR 
    The following is a list of exempt and prohibited off-the-record 
communications recently received in the Office of the Secretary. Copies 
of this filing are on file with the Commission and are available for 
public inspection. The documents may be viewed on the web at http://www.ferc.gov using the ``RIMS'' link, select ``Docket#'' and follow the
