A Bidder that submits a Proposal to the BEC RFP must be a member of PJM in good standing (either as an Affiliate Member or as a Voting Member as those terms are defined by PJM) and/or must be a Certified Market Participant in MISO (as this term is defined by MISO) as of the opening of the Part 1 Window. A Bidder that is not currently a Seller to a Company under the applicable supplier contract, and has not been a Seller to a Company under an applicable supplier contract pursuant to a 2016, 2017, 2018, or the Spring 2019 procurement event under the BEC RFP or under the Standard Products RFP, must provide evidence that it is an Affiliate Member or a Voting Member in PJM and/or that it is a Certified Market Participant in MISO in the Part 1 Proposal.
The Procurement Administrator does not have an exhaustive list of evidence that must be submitted to meet this requirement. A screenshot of the Member List from PJM that clearly displays the Company as a Current Member and also confirms the Member Type, a list issued by MISO that identifies the Bidder as a Certified Market Participant, or other documentation from PJM or MISO that confirms the Bidder’s status are examples of evidence that may meet the requirement.
Please note that a Bidder that participates in PJM or MISO through another entity, such as a scheduling agent, must provide evidence of its relationship with such other entity and must provide evidence that such other entity is an Affiliate Member or a Voting Member in PJM and/or that it is a Certified Market Participant in MISO.
