Communications and Settlements Working Group
The Communications and Settlement Working Group (CSWG) reporting to Commercial Operating Subcommittee (COPS) is responsible for reviewing the settlement issues, communication processes and data flow through reports and extracts. CSWG will focus on the effectiveness of communications and data flow to ensure that all participants receive timely and accurate market information. CSWG will analyze and work with ERCOT to interpret for market participants settlement results and anomalies worth investigation. CSWG will maintain the ERCOT Commercial Market Guide, the Nodal Settlements Handbook, and the Commercial Operations Handbook by capturing necessary changes from market rule changes or system changes. CSWG will focus on any ERCOT system changes that would impact middle and back office systems and engage ERCOT in dialogue to understand such changes in content and design.
