A.      Order G-123-09 approved the Compliance Monitoring Program (CMP) which provides a process for dealing with violations to Mandatory Reliability Standards (MRS) adopted by the British Columbia Utilities Commission (Commission);

C.      On October 3, 2012, WECC also advised DGP of its rights under Section 4.2 of the CMP, pursuant to which DGP has thirty days (30) to respond to the NOAV.  The CMP also states if DGP fails to respond within 30 days, the Commission may consider the Alleged Violations in the absence of a submission;


D.      On October 31, 2012, DGP responded to the NOAV and were in agreement with the Alleged Violations;
