In this case, the court concluded that the Commission is required to determine the reasonableness of costs incurred by other Federal agencies (OFA's) pertaining to their participation in FERC proceedings under Part I of the Federal Power Act when OFA's seek to include such costs in the administrative annual charges licensees must pay to reimburse the United States for the cost of administering Part I. The Commission's June 18 Order, among other things, introduced a proposed new form to be used in submitting OFA costs. 107 FERC ¶ 61,277.
By separate notice also dated June 18, the Commission stated that the form would be finalized in a technical conference. On August 13, 2004, the Commission issued a notice announcing the final OFA form.
