Sponsor: Judy Briscoe on behalf of the COPS Communications Working Group
Urgent: No
Sections: 4
Description: To incorporate Section 4, Unplanned Outage Communication Process, into the Commercial Operations Market Guide. Section 4 documents the means by which ERCOT will communicate to the market during an unplanned outage event, including type and frequency of communication and escalation to stakeholder subcommittees, TAC and the Board, as necessary.
Reason: To fulfill one of the 2006 goals of the Commercial Operations Subcommittee (COPS) as established during its 2/14/06 meeting: that the COPS Communications Working Group (CCWG) will work with ERCOT staff to document and standardize communication flow around unplanned outage events.
