Requests for investigation must be received within 30 days of the TLR event.
The initial investigation shall compare all transaction curtailment lists as generated by the IDC with the list of transactions flowing as determined by the IDC (Whole Transaction Lists) both before and after curtailment. The reasons for any transactions that were excluded from curtailment shall be provided. For those transactions not curtailed, the Reliability Authority will identify those entities and any affiliation with said entities.
Once the initial investigation has been completed, it may be necessary to complete a more detailed audit of the TLR event. This would come at the request of the NERC director of Compliance, the original parties who requested the audit, the NERC ORS or RAWG Chairs, or the NERC Operating Committee Chair. Any such request must be made within 30 days subsequent to the posting of the report resulting from the initial investigation. The purpose of this investigation will be to review in detail all aspects of the TLR process from beginning to end. A team comprised of one person from compliance staff of an unaffected Region, one unaffected Reliability Authority, and one person from NERC compliance staff will carry out this detailed investigation. Additionally, at the request of the Operating Committee Chair, it may be necessary to secure the services of an independent auditor to carry out such an investigation. Such a complete investigation will require significant resources and time to complete. In such an investigation, it is not the intent to collect the same information as included in the initial report. There may be a need for additional data and information, as well as a site visit. However, all aspects of the initial report will be reviewed. Additionally, staff members will:
