SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: FERC-725Z (Mandatory Reliability Standards: IRO Reliability 
Standards).
    OMB Control No.: 1902-0276.
    Type of Request: Revisions to the information collection, as 
discussed in Docket No. RD19-6-000.
    Abstract: In a joint petition dated May 30, 2019, the North 
American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) and Western 
Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC) requested Commission approval 
for proposed Reliability Standard IRO-002-6 (Reliability Coordination, 
Monitoring and Analysis). NERC and WECC stated that the ``proposed 
Reliability Standard IRO-002-6 reflects the addition of a regional 
Variance containing additional requirements applicable to Reliability 
Coordinators providing service to entities in the Western 
Interconnection and none of the continent-wide requirements have been 
changed from currently effective Reliability Standard IRO-002-5.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The burden related to continent-wide Reliability Standard 
IRO-002-5 (Reliability Coordination, Monitoring and Analysis) is 
included in FERC-725Z (Mandatory Reliability Standards: IRO 
Reliability Standards, OMB Control No. 1902-0276).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Type of Respondents: Reliability coordinators (RC) providing 
service to entities in the Western Interconnection.
    Estimate of Annual Burden: \2\ The Commission estimates the changes 
in the annual public reporting burden and cost as follows.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Burden is defined as the total time, effort, or financial 
resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or 
disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. For 
further explanation of what is included in the information 
collection burden, refer to 5 Code of Federal Regulations 1320.3.

    Comments: Comments are invited on: (1) Whether the collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the Commission, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; (2) the accuracy of the agency's estimates of the burden and 
cost of the collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, 
utility and clarity of the information collection; and (4) ways to 
minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are 
to respond, including the use of automated collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ Our estimates are based on the joint petition which 
indicates at present, only one reliability coordinator, Peak 
Reliability, provides reliability coordinator services in the 
Western Interconnection. In July 2018, Peak Reliability announced 
that it would cease operations at the end of December 2019. Over the 
course of 2018 and 2019, several entities have indicated that they 
will seek certification to perform the reliability coordinator 
function for their respective footprints in the Western 
Interconnection. For the purposes of this information collection, 
the WECC RC certification status was used to estimate the number of 
entities within the United States making significant progress to 
become certified Western Interconnection reliability coordinators. 
The certification progress chart and schedule are posted at the 
following link: https://www.wecc.org/EventAnalysisSituationalAwareness/Pages/Certification.aspx.
    \4\ The hourly cost figures, for salary plus benefits, for the 
new standards are based on Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) 
information (at http://www.bls.gov/oes/current/naics2_22.htm), as of 
May 2018, and benefits information for December 2018 (at https://www.bls.gov/news.release/ecec.nr0.htm). For salary plus benefits, 
for reporting requirements, an electrical engineer (code 17-2071) is 
$68.17/hour; for the recordkeeping requirements, an information and 
record clerk (code 43-4199) is $40.84/hour.
    \5\ The reporting and recordkeeping requirements and the 
associated burden will continue in IRO-002-6 (burden formerly 
included in IRO-002-5,). The corresponding estimated burden for the 
11 RCs continues to be 30 hours per response (or a total estimated 
burden of 330 hours).
    \6\ The estimated burden is for the development phase and the 
ongoing effort to administer/implement the variance requirements.
