Posting legal notices and policies enhances transparency
The ISO provides public notice of certain information as required legally and by ISO policies including Alternative Dispute Resolution, government information requests, corporate records and open meetings.
ISO incorporation and policies
The ISO is a nonprofit public benefit corporation operating under these bylaws, incorporation documents and enabling legislation. Our employees and the Board of Governors are subject to clear and well defined codes of conduct and policies.
Independent municipal advisor exemption
The ISO has retained Sperry Capital, Inc. as our independent registered municipal advisor in accordance with the independent registered municipal advisor exemption to the SEC Municipal Advisor Rule. Sperry Capital will provide us advice on proposals from financial services firms regarding issuance of municipal securities and municipal financial products (including investments of bond proceeds and escrow investments). This notice may be relied upon until July 1, 2021.
Alternative dispute resolution
Most disputes under the tariff or agreements with the ISO are subject to the alternative dispute resolution procedure in Section 13 of the tariff. The first step in that procedure is negotiation under Section 13.2.1, sometimes known as good faith negotiations (GFN). If a dispute is not resolved through negotiations, a party may submit a Statement of Claim to commence further proceedings.
Matters on appealThe ISO posts notices of appeal for ADR matters, summarizes the claim and arbitration award for each matter on appeal, and contains the awards to the extent they have become publicly available.
THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO MATTERS ON APPEAL.
Matters in alternative dispute resolutionThe ISO posts information about claims currently in ADR, including a statement of claim summary, notices of demand for arbitration, identity of any additional participants and their petitions to intervene. THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO MATTERS IN ADR.
Government information requests
The California ISO provides public notification and access for government information requests by posting the documents to this website.
