REVISED Request for Proposals for Regulatory Accounting & Ratemaking Services

11 April 2017

Vermont Department of Public Service's Revised Request for Proposals for Regulatory Accounting & Ratemaking Services
(Please note the deadline for responding to this RFP has been extended to April 19, 2017)

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 Green Mountain Power Corporation (GMP) with the Board in mid-April 2017.  The work primarily involves an independent assessment of GMP’s proposed cost of service under traditional Vermont ratemaking standards, and the provision of associated expert witness services.

This is one of three RFPs being issued by the Department in connection with the anticipated rate proceeding.  Respondents should review the other two RFPs (Cost of Capital, and Capital Planning).  To the extent a Respondent wishes to pursue more than one RFP, it should separately respond to each request.

Proposals are due by 4:00 pm on April 19, 2017, with the goal of finalizing a contract by mid- to late-April.  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:
