3 OC Approval Item – Rescind BPS-014 WECC-INT-BPS-014 Identification of Contingency Reserve Responsibilities on tags Purpose: Identify in the e-Tag the Reliability Entity responsible for carrying contingency reserves and the obligation amount so that all parties to the e-Tag have a mutual understanding of contingency reserve responsibilities and obligations for every interchange transaction.

When both the Source and Sink Balancing Authorities (BAs) are within the Western interconnection, e-Tag Authors will identify the Balancing Authority (BA) or Reserve Sharing Group (RSG) member responsible for including the transaction in their calculation of Contingency Reserve requirements. This entity will be referred to as the Responsible Entity. Only one selection can be made.

5 OC Approval Item Vote Motion: Rescind WECC-INT-BPS-014 concurrent with WECC-BAL-002 Standard Implementation A Yes Vote will indicate all reserve responsibilities will be identified strictly by the requirements in BAL-002 A No Vote will indicate at the least WECC-INT-BPS-014 would be remanded back to ISAS for modification
