Vermont Department of Public Service's Request for Proposals for Regulatory Accounting and Ratemaking Services

The Vermont Department of Public Service (Department), which represents the public interest in utility cases before the Vermont Public Service Board (Board), is soliciting proposals from qualified experts in regulatory accounting and ratemaking matters to review and make recommendations on a rate filing anticipated to be filed by Vermont Gas Systems, Inc.

The work is anticipated to take place primarily from February through October 2017.  The contract period will begin when a contract is executed and end one year from that date. 

Proposals are due by close of business on February 22, 2017, with the goal of finalizing a contract by early March.  The selected Respondent should be available to start immediately thereafter.  Three (3) hard copies and one (1) electronic copy of the proposal must be delivered to the Department.  Proposals and questions should be addressed to:
