Stakeholder Prioritization Process

Quick Links

SPP’s stakeholder prioritization process, established in 2015, is transitioning to become part of the SPP Roadmap process effective this calendar year. As a result, the Stakeholder Prioritization Quarterly Meeting (SPQM) will no longer be held, although the quarterly report itself will continue to be posted.

This transition is a result of ongoing stakeholder and staff dialogue on how we can better align and streamline our processes to ensure the right work gets the right focus at the right time. The roadmap process evaluates all incoming work, from strategic initiatives and projects to revision requests (RRs), enhancements and defects. The focus remains the same: elicit stakeholder feedback on what work takes priority.

SPP staff will post a quarterly report with the same content as before (including priority ranking and cost estimates for each effort) for stakeholder review and comment. To submit a comment regarding any project, RR, enhancement or defect identified in the most recent quarterly report, select the “SPQM” Request Template via SPP's Request Management System and it will be routed to the appropriate internal team. This request template will no longer have a time restriction and members will have the ability to submit a comment on the most recent quarterly report throughout the year.

Our goal is to continuously improve SPP’s level of transparency and mechanisms for stakeholders to provide input into the prioritization of stakeholder initiatives, projects, enhancements and RRs. Please reference the SPP Roadmap process for more information on how you can get involved in the prioritization of efforts across the SPP project pipeline.
