RTO/ISO Performance Metrics

In 2008, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued a report, FERC Could Take Additional Steps to Analyze Regional Transmission Organizations’ Benefits and Performance PDF, recommending that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) develop standardized measures or metrics to track the performance of Regional Transmission Organization (RTO) operations and markets.

The Commission is in the process of obtaining approval from OMB to collect information to improve our data collection efforts. These improvements include significant changes to the metrics themselves, as well as improving survey design for greater end-user ease of use. ?We have introduced a user guide and a pre-formatted data input spreadsheet. Docket No. AD19-16-000 contains details relating to the most recent information collection.
