Take notice that on January 22, 2014, the staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) will hold a technical conference on the Revisions to Electric Quarterly Report (EQR) Filing Process. The conference will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (EST), in the Commission Meeting Room at 888 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20426. The public may attend.

Commission staff will demonstrate the new EQR filing system announced in Order No. 770.[1] The new filing system includes two options for filing EQRs: one that will allow EQR users to file through a web interface on the Commission's Web site, and a second that will allow an EQR filer to file its EQR in an Extensible Mark-up Language formatted file. At the conference, staff will demonstrate how to make a filing using both the XML and web interface approaches.

The new EQR filing system is being prepared for deployment and testing logs indicate that users are successfully making filings in the test sandbox. However, in an effort to assure robust testing by users, staff would like to allow the public additional time to test the new system after having the benefit of participating in the January 22, 2013 technical conference. Staff believes that this will allow the public the opportunity to provide any additional Start Printed Page 79435feedback before parties are required to file under the new system. For this reason, staff anticipates that the first filings under the new system (for 3Q EQRs) will be due sometime around March 1 through March 30. Further information regarding the 3Q filing deadline will be forthcoming in a subsequent notice.
