|(a) Purpose. This section establishes reporting requirements for transactions between utilities and their affiliates. (b) Application. This section applies to: (1) electric utilities operating in the State of Texas as defined in the Public Utility Regulatory Act (PURA) §31.002(6), and transactions or activities between electric utilities and their affiliates, as defined in PURA §11.003(2); and (2) transmission and distribution utilities operating in a qualifying power region in the State of Texas as defined in PURA §31.002(19) upon commission certification of a qualifying power region pursuant to PURA §39.152, and transactions or activities between transmission and distribution utilities and their affiliates, as defined in PURA §11.003(2). (c) Definitions. Any terms defined in §25.272 of this title (relating to Code of Conduct for Electric Utilities and Their Affiliates) have the same meanings herein. (d) Annual report of affiliate activities. A "Report of Affiliate Activities" shall be filed annually with the commission. Using forms approved by the commission, a utility shall report activities among itself and its affiliates in accordance with the requirements in this section. The report shall be filed by June 1, and shall encompass the period from January 1 through December 31 of the preceding year. (e) Copies of contracts or agreements. A utility shall reduce to writing and file with the commission copies of any contracts or agreements it has with its affiliates. The requirements of this subsection are not satisfied by the filing of an earnings report. All contracts or agreements shall be filed by June 1 of each year as attachments to the Report of Affiliate Activities required in subsection (d) of this section. In subsequent years, if no significant changes have been made to the contract or agreement, an amendment sheet may be filed in lieu of refiling the entire contract or agreement. (f) Tracking migration of employees. A utility shall track and document the movement between the utility and its competitive affiliates of all employees engaged in transmission or distribution system operations, including persons employed by a service company affiliated with the utility who are engaged in transmission or distribution system operations on a day-to-day basis or have knowledge of transmission or distribution system operations. Employee migration information shall be included in the utility's Report of Affiliate Activities. The tracking information shall include an identification code for the migrating employee, the respective titles held while employed at each entity, and the effective dates of the migration. (g) Annual reporting of informal complaint resolution. A utility shall report to the commission information regarding the nature and status of informal complaints handled in accordance with the utility's procedures developed pursuant to §25.272(i)(4) of this title (relating to Code of Conduct for Electric Utilities and Their Affiliates). The information reported shall include the name of the complainant and a summary report of the complaint, including all relevant dates, companies involved, employees involved, the specific claim, and any actions taken to address the complaint. Such information on all informal complaints that were initiated or remained unresolved during the reporting period shall be included in the utility's Report of Affiliate Activities. (h) Reporting of deviations from the code of conduct. A utility shall report information regarding the instances in which deviations from the code of conduct were necessary to ensure public safety and system reliability pursuant to §25.272(d)(4) of this title. The information reported shall include the nature of the circumstances requiring the deviation, the action taken by the utility and the parties involved, and the date of the deviation. Within 30 days of each deviation, the utility shall report this information to the commission and shall conspicuously post the information on its Internet site or a public electronic bulletin board for 30 consecutive calendar days. Such information shall be summarized in the utility's Report of Affiliate Activities. (i) Annual update of compliance plans. Initial plans for compliance with §25.272 of this title (relating to Code of Conduct for Electric Utilities and Their Affiliates) shall be supplied as a part of the utility's unbundling plan filed pursuant to PURA §39.051. The utility shall post a conspicuous notice of newly created affiliates and file any related updates to the utility's compliance plan on a timely basis pursuant to §25.272(i)(2) of this title. Additionally, the utility shall ensure that its annual Report of Affiliate Activities reflects all approved changes to its compliance plans, including those changes that result from the creation of new affiliates.
