On September 26, 2007, Commission staff convened a technical conference to discuss provisions in the California Independent System Operator Corporation's (CAISO) Business Practice Manuals (BPMs) which, in parties' view, should be included in the CAISO's Market Redesign and Technology Upgrade (MRTU) tariff.[1] As a result of the technical conference, on November 15, 2007, the CAISO proposed to revise the MRTU tariff to include additional provisions that had originally been included in the BPMs.[2]

In an order issued on March 24, 2008, the Commission accepted and rejected various proposed tariff revisions submitted by the CAISO and ordered a further compliance filing.[3] In the March 2008 Order, the Commission also directed staff to convene a technical conference “approximately six months after MRTU implementation [to] provide all parties with a final opportunity to identify any details in new or revised [BPM] language developed after November 15, 2007, which commenters believe should be included in the MRTU tariff.” [4]

To address the directive of the March 2008 Order, the Commission is seeking comments from parties in the above-referenced proceedings, as set forth in the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure,[5] on the need for Commission staff to convene a technical conference for the purposes of “provid[ing] all parties with a final opportunity to identify any details in new or revised [BPM] language developed after November 15, 2007, which commenters believe should be included in the MRTU tariff.” [6] Parties may file written comments on or before September 22, 2009.
