BEC-16: Could I receive more information on the Supplier Fee? Should a Bidder incorporate the Supplier Fee in its total Bid?

The Supplier Fees, which are levied only on Bidders that have Bids approved by the Illinois Commerce Commission (“ICC”), are used to cover part of the costs of the procurement events. Payment of the Supplier Fees is due to the Illinois Power Agency by the seventh business day after the ICC Decision, which is expected on Friday, September 13, 2019.

The Procurement Administrator will inform qualified Bidders of the amount of the Supplier Fee per on-peak block, the amount of the Supplier Fee per off-peak block, and the amount of the Supplier Fee per ZRC no later than 6 PM on the Part 2 Date, Wednesday, August 28, 2019. The Procurement Administrator provided an estimate of the Supplier Fee per on-peak block, the Supplier Fee per off-peak block, and the Supplier Fee per ZRC as part of the webcast held on July 23, 2019. The estimates are the following:

  • $127 per on-peak block
  • $85 per off-peak block
  • $20 per ZRC

The Procurement Administrator does not comment on how a Bidder should calculate its Bid(s).
