WIRAB Advice to Peak Reliability on Including Third Party Data Sharing in its Universal Data Sharing Agreement

The Western Interconnection Regional Advisory Body (“WIRAB”) submitted advice to Peak Reliability regarding if Peak’s Universal Data Sharing Agreement (“UDSA”) should be amended to include a third party data sharing review process. WIRAB recommended that the UDSA be amended to include a third party data sharing review process while ensuring continued security and protection for Critical Electric Infrastructure Information (“CEII”). WIRAB recommended that Peak reengage immediately with stakeholders on a third party data sharing review process that can allow for the sharing of information that is not CEII and to set up another trigger point for Peak and stakeholders to discuss how to allow for information that is considered CEII to be shared appropriately.
