TRIENNIAL COMPLIANCE UPDATE
For any company that has a triennial filing due date that falls from November 17, 2020 through May 16, 2021, that has submitted a full application to serve mass market customers, you are exempt from filing a triennial. You are still required to submit a letter into DMM 14-02554 that states you have submitted a revised application in lieu of the triennial. If you have any material changes after you have filed the revised application, then you are still required to submit those changes as part of the triennial filing requirement. Additionally, if you submitted an attestation to serve large C&I customers only, you will not be exempt from filing your triennial at the current due date.




DATA SECURITY AGREEMENT (DSA) and SELF-ATTESTATION (SA)

On December 16, 2019, the Joint Utilities filed an updated Data Security Agreement (DSA) and accompanying Self-Attestation (SA) as required by the Commission's October 17, 2019 Order Establishing Minimum Cybersecurity and Privacy Protections and Making Other Findings. The Joint Utilities previously advised that the DSA would be sent to ESEs for execution shortly after it was filed. The utilities are sending the revised DSA for execution over the next couple of days. The executed DSA, including the Self Attestation, should be returned to each utility by January 6, 2020. To expedite the process, the utilities are sending out pre-signed DSAs. The DSA and SA must be signed without changes or qualifications and will not be accepted or valid if such changes and qualifications are made.
