Summary
The program is spending under budget through
Mays actuals. Discussions with the ERCOT
Executive Committee outlined possible ways to
ensure we are on budget at completion.
TPTF/PRS approved Baseline 1 on June 12 and
Baseline 2 on June 21. TAC recommended baseline
12 NPRRs on June 28. Program scope can be
declared Green subject to Board approval of NPRRs
for Baseline 1 and 2.
EDS1 and 2 proceeding on schedule. EDS3 approach
approved by TPTF on June 11. There are
schedule risks in Baseline 1 2 which we are
mitigating.

TPTF have made clear their want for a plan and
consultation to resolve dissatisfaction over the
existing user experience offered by ERCOT
  • To address user experience issues ERCOT has
  • Established User Experience and Visual Design
    Guidelines which contain the user interface (UI)
    Development Process and expected results in style
    and design approach
  • Provided these to the vendors as standards for UI
    for the applications being developed
  • Created a UI design schedule for each Nodal
    project that will be market-facing in the go-live
    market
