    AGENDA ITEM 1 - ADMINISTRATIVE ITEMS a) Chairman Grant Wilkerson called the meeting to order at 9:10 a.m. There were 21

    people in attendance, representing 9 BPWG members, 5 SPP Staff members, and 7 guests.(Attachment 1 BPWG_Attendance_Record_8_7_2012)

    b) Rob Anklam and Jenni Leger were introduced as new Members of the BPWG. Chairman Wilkerson also informed the group that there is one open position still remaining on the BPWG roster.

    c) There were no proxies submitted for this meeting. d) Rick McCord made a motion to approve the minutes of 6/25/2012 as

    published. The motion received a second from Ed Hammons and was unanimously approved.

    e) The agenda was reviewed, revised, and accepted. (Attachment 2 BPWG_REVISED_Agenda 8_7_2012).

    AGENDA ITEM 2 ELECTION OF VICE-CHAIR Chairman Wilkerson opened the floor for nominations for the Vice-Chairman position because of Robert Walkers resignation from the BPWG. Rick McCord was nominated and unanimously approved as Vice-Chair.

    AGENDA ITEM 3 REVIEW OF PREVIOUS ACTION ITEMS

    Clint Savoy reviewed the past action items with the group, all of which would be discussed during this meeting.

    AGENDA ITEM 4 BPR031 TSR AUTOMATION Clint Savoy presented Business Practice Revision Request (BPR) 031 (Attachment 3 BPR031 TSR Automation), revisions submitted by Staff to several Business Practices (1500, 1700, and 2350) to accommodate the automation of short term Transmission Service Request (TSR) processing. The suggested revisions included no longer allowing DC Tie-only TSRs, limiting the combining of TSRs (a.k.a. pancaking) to grandfathered agreements not under the Tariff, and limiting the ability to profile TSRs to Yearly service only. Meeting participants discussed the revisions and provided feedback. When asked why these revisions were necessary SPP Staff responded that not implementing these revisions could have both a monetary and staffing impact on the initiative to automate

    TSR processing. After discussing the quantitative details, the group determined that the potential revenues warranted allowing the ability to pancake reservations. Group consensus was to continue to allow DC Tie-only requests for firm transmission service, keeping the ability to pancake SPP transmission service requests, and to research whether not allowing hourly service to be profiled was in conflict with pro forma.

    Action Item: Clint Savoy to revise BPR031 to allow DC Tie-only requests for firm transmission service and retain the ability to pancake SPP transmission service requests. Also, Mr. Savoy will research whether not allowing hourly service to be profiled was in conflict with pro forma.

    REVISED AGENDA ITEM 5 RESERVATION AND SCHEDULING IN THE INTEGRATED MARKETPLACE DISCUSSION Bert Bressers lead the group in a discussion about reserving and scheduling transmission service after the Integrated Marketplace goes live in March 2014. The main point of discussion was the ability to arrange transactions to and from the SPP Market without having to select a specific source or sink. Mr. Bressers stepped through a presentation (Attachment 4 - BPWG_Reservations and Scheduling in the Integrated Marketplace_BBressers) describing the potential impacts of allowing for transactions to and from the SPP Market. Richard Ross stated that unless the proposed changes remedy AEPs inability to schedule into Entergy it was very unlikely he would support them. Mr. Ross also made a point that SPP could be used as a POR or POD without a major impact to accounting systems because sources and sinks are mapped to transmission zones behind the scenes today and this would not be a change. Grant Wilkerson expressed concerns of these market-to-market transactions causing differences between the Day-Ahead and Real-Time markets.

    REVISED AGENDA ITEM 6 GENERATOR INTERCONNECTION AND AG STUDY IMPROVEMENTS

    Lanny Nickell presented the four (4) top Ag Study and Generator Interconnection Improvement suggestions acquired through the InnoCentive posting. (Attachment 5 External Think Tank)

    InnoCentive is a web-based open innovation, crowd-sourcing, and prize competition coordinator that enables organizations to solve their key problems by connecting them to diverse sources of innovation including employees, customers, partners, and the worlds largest problem solving marketplace.

    The submitted approaches were reviewed and discussed. Mr. Nickell advised the group that SPP now needs to respond to InnoCentive and indicate how SPP wishes to allocate the $10,000 award; to which submission and in what amount. Mr. Nickell cautioned the group that until such awards are made, all submissions are considered to be the intellectual property of the respective authors.

    Richard Ross suggested that Mr. Nickell allocate awards as appropriate. Once the awards have been accepted, Charles Hendrix and Steve Purdy will determine how and where to incorporate the supplied solutions.

    Mr. Nickell will advise once the awards have been made.

    AGENDA ITEM 7 EVALUATING WAIVER REQUESTS The group discussed the waiver evaluation process and the attendance thresholds. There was a desire to bring framework to the analysis process, as well as to obtain action delegation from the Board of Directors to the MOPC. One participant suggested that MOPC would be given authority to approve the waivers with the Board of Directors only being required to approve those waivers that are debatable or controversial.

    Action Item: James Hotovy and Richard Ross agreed to re-open the previously discussed BPR025 dealing with relevant timing issue and waiver requests/approvals, with a goal of establishing a Waiver Submission process.

    AGENDA ITEM 8 TOUR OF SPP CORPORATE CENTER

    Clint Savoy gave the in-person participants a tour of the business offices at the new SPP Corporate Center.

    AGENDA ITEM 9 FUTURE MEETINGS

    The next meeting will be a face-to-face at the Kansas City Airport Marriott on Wednesday, September 12, 2012, from 9:00 am CDT to 3:00 pm CDT.
