Petition for Approval of Amendments to NERC-FRCC Delegation Agreements, FRCC Bylaws, and FRCC CMEP

On February 22, 2012, in Docket No. RR12-4, NERC submitted a request for approval of proposed amendments to NERC’s Delegation Agreement with the Florida Reliability Coordinating Council (FRCC), including amendments to FRCC Bylaws and the FRCC Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement Program (CMEP).  By approving the amendments to the NERC-FRCC Delegation Agreement, FERC would also be approving the Bylaws as a “Regional Entity Rule.”  The principal purposes of the amendments to the Bylaws are (1) to provide for the election by the FRCC Voting Members of Alternate Directors to act in place of the corresponding Director when the Director is not present or unavailable, including as members of the FRCC Board Compliance Committee (“BCC”), which acts as the Regional Entity Hearing Body for FRCC; and (2) to adopt dispute resolution procedures for disputes not covered by the CMEP or other NERC dispute resolution procedures. The amendments provide that an Alternate Director may serve on the BCC in a regional hearing of compliance matter.  To view NERC’s filing, click here.
