SPP RTO Compliance

SPP RTO Compliance Department

SPP’s goals for its Compliance and Standards Development departments, in part, are to facilitate the compliance of SPP business units relative to their obligations under the NERC Reliability Standards. SPP staff will strive to effectuate a systematic compliance program by providing a framework for proactive management of SPP’s compliance obligations and the oversight necessary to provide assurance that SPP is meeting those obligations. We will partner with SPP staff and with SPP stakeholders and commit to compliance excellence at SPP.

Adhoc Questions

If you have any questions or requests regarding RTO Compliance or Standards Development, please submit your question via the Remedy Management System (RMS)


SPP RTO Compliance will be processing attestation requests through the Request Management System (RMS). SPP requests that the attestation include a specific date range. If you do not have an RMS account set up, please follow the instructions.

Attestation requests will be handled on a case-by-case basis, and SPP makes no guarantees that attestations will be provided for each request.

Standards Development Comment Calls and Comment Facilitation

The standards development group facilitates a standard commenting call review for applicable SPP members and staff. The standards development group completes an up-front technical review and drafts initial comments. Relevant balloting positions for the project are discussed as well as determining any discrepancies in positions between SPP's comments and SPP member comments. The Standards Development Group communicates member and staff concerns, for each project, with the SPP Representative on the ISO/RTO Council.
