2019 Rule Change Proposal Prioritisation and Scheduling Framework Review

Date First Published on the Rule Change Panel’s website: 28 October 2019

Closing Date: 5:00 PM on Friday 8 November 2019

Current Status: The submission period is now closed. The Final Report and the Rule Change Proposal Prioritisation and Scheduling Framework were published on 2 January 2020.

Background: The Rule Change Panel (Panel) approved the current Rule Change Proposal Prioritisation and Scheduling Framework (Framework) on 21 July 2017. The Framework is intended to provide a means for the Panel to efficiently manage its workload to produce the best outcomes for the energy markets and consumers. This Framework establishes the processes to:
• prioritise each Rule Change Proposal (Proposal) in a way that offers the greatest benefits in terms of the Wholesale Market Objectives and GSI Objectives; and
• manage the Panel’s work program based on its resource availability and priorities, including deciding when additional resources are required to support the Panel.

The Rule Change Panel has conducted a review of the Framework to ensure consistency with the Wholesale Electricity Market Rules and Gas Services Information Rules, and to clarify the factors that influence the urgency rating and prioritisation of Proposals.

The Panel has considered all submissions received. The new Framework is in effect as from 2 January 2020.
