Closed Committees 

Closed committees are forums for discussions that may include critical energy infrastructure information or non-public information related to the MISO transmission system or the transmission system of another transmission provider.

Participation

Closed committee participation is limited to MISO personnel, MISO reliability footprint transmission owners/operators and other transmission entities such as Balancing Authorities and other transmission entities for which MISO provides reliability services under contract. 

To request access to a closed committee and/or to obtain additional information, visit the Client Relations page and fill out an online access request form.  Links to both are available under "Related Links" at the top of this page.

Each participant must:

  1. Obtain authorized access to the Reliability Authority page
  2. Be listed as an Employee, Agent or Consultant on a Certified Market Participant’s fully executed UNDA and must NOT be listed with the job function of “Market/Merchant”
  3. Execute the individual CEII NDA

Closed Committee meetings may only include Balancing Authority (BA), Local Balancing Authority (LBA) and Transmission Operator (TOP) representatives from a MISO Reliability Coordinator (RC) Area.  All materials are posted to the Reliability Authority area of the MISO extranet.

It is each participating company’s and participant’s responsibility to ensure that they have the appropriate credentials and remain in compliance with Commission regulations regarding Standards of Conduct. 

Closed Committees

Reliable Operations Working Group - Closed (ROWG-Closed)

**Note:  ROWG-CLOSED is a merger of the former Operations Working Group - Closed (OWG-CLOSED) and the Operations Planning Working Group - Closed (OPWG-CLOSED).

The ROWG-CLOSED  shall provide a forum to promote the reliability of the bulk electric system and to develop, review and recommend operational planning practices.  This goal is supported by the evaluation and review of significant reliability related events and operational planning practices (including Available Flowgate Capacity, operating studies, outage coordination, operating guides and operating procedures).

Resilient Operations Task Team - Closed (ROTT-Closed)
The ROTT-CLOSED's purpose is to document scenarios, identify risks and develop possible mitigation to improve resiliency. 

This user group is under the Reliable Operations Working Group - Closed(ROWG-CLOSED).  Notification on meetings will be sent to the ROWG-CLOSED email distribution list. 

 Synchrophasor Stakeholder User Group - Closed (SSUG-CLOSED)
SSUG-Closed is a forum for MISO members to collaborate on efforts to apply synchrophasor technology following the closeout of the MISO DOE Smart Grid Investment Grant (SGIG) project. With the MISO DOE SGIG project ending on March 31, 2015, stakeholders have requested a formal group to enable the sharing of knowledge and the development of guidelines for the use and application of the technology. The group will have conference calls quarterly and plans to have one in-person meeting in 2015. Meeting agendas may include device installations and maintenance, infrastructure, technology applications, data quality, training, and other related topics. 

This user group is under the Reliable Operations Working Group - Closed(ROWG-CLOSED).  Notification on meetings will be sent to the ROWG-CLOSED email distribution list.
