Take notice that on July 7, 2003, the Bonneville Power Administration (Bonneville) filed a Petition for a Declaratory Order Maintaining Reciprocity Approval of Its Open Access Transmission Tariff (OATT) and an Exemption In Lieu of a Filing Fee with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission). Bonneville states that it has revised sections 13.2, 14.2, 17.1 and 18.1 of its OATT to change its procedure for awarding short-term transmission requests. Bonneville explains that these revisions eliminate the right of first refusal to match competing requests for short-term transmission service and adopt a first-come, first-served approach. Bonneville further explains that it has also revised Attachment K to its OATT in accordance with the 2004 Rate Case Settlement. Additionally, Bonneville states that it has refiled its entire OATT to voluntarily adopt the Order No. 614 pagination standards, as applicable.
Bonneville states that the Commission found its OATT to be an acceptable reciprocity transmission tariff, effective October 1, 2001, by Order Granting Petition for Declaratory Order, 94 FERC 61,317 (March 19, 2001) and Order on Tariff Amendment, 96 FERC 62,337 (September 28, 2001). Bonneville further states that it now seeks a declaratory order finding that its OATT, as revised by this filing, continues to maintain its reciprocity status. Bonneville has also requested an expedited approval process, making the changes effective as of August 15, 2003.
