Draft 2019 Business Plan and Budget Posted for Comment

On April 26, 2018, the Board of Directors approved ReliabilityFirst’s draft 2019 Business Plan and Budget for publication for 30 day industry comment and release to NERC. 

NERC and the Regions developed a set of strategic and operating objectives in order to develop their individual BP&Bs with a common foundation.  These strategic and operating objectives are set forth in the ERO Enterprise Long Term Strategy and ERO Enterprise Operating Plan documents. Any unique objectives that apply only to ReliabilityFirst are expressly noted in the 2019 BP&B.  In developing the 2019 BP&B, management considered the common objectives, conducted manpower analyses, considered efficiency gains attributable to new processes and maturing systems, and examined projected future workloads.​

Highlights of the proposed 2019 BP&B (compared to the 2018 BP&B) are as follows:

  • An overall increase in the budget of 5.86% or $1,254,559​
  • An increase in total personnel expenses of 6.4% or $1,139,233
  • An increase in operating and fixed asset expenses of 3.3% or $115,326
  • The addition of 2 FTEs
  • An overall increase in assessments to Load Serving Entities of 5.5% or $1,108,123

The comment period runs from April 27, 2018 through May 27, 2018.  Click here to access the posting.
