Stakeholder Prioritization Process

Quick Links

The Stakeholder Prioritization Process was established by SPP at the direction of the Markets and Operations Policy Committee (MOPC) in July 2015. (Download the July 2015 MOPC meeting materials here.)

The process – defined by the Stakeholder Prioritization Task Force (SPTF)– is based on the principle that there is power in participation.  It provides a mechanism by which stakeholders can provide input into the prioritization of projects and enhancement and revision requests.

SPP staff post a quarterly report of all member-facing, member-impacting enhancement requests, revision requests, and projects (including priority ranking and cost estimates for each) for stakeholder review and comment.

Below are listed upcoming deadlines and posting dates you may find recent reports and other materials related to the stakeholder prioritization process in the Related Documents menu to the left.

To submit an enhancement or revision request or a comment regarding an enhancement or revision request or project identified in the most recent quarterly report, select the appropriate Request Template via SPP's Request Management System (link opens a new window).
