    2016 Prudential Framework review – next steps

    The IESO has received stakeholder feedback to help inform the IESO's review of its current real-time market prudential framework.  This feedback will be posted shortly.  The IESO is reviewing this feedback and in the autumn of 2016 will prepare a preliminary Prudential Review report which will review the current framework, feedback along with recommended changes (if any).  The IESO may schedule a meeting in late 2016 to review and discuss the preliminary report and may invite further feedback.

    The IESO is aiming to develop a final Prudential Report by year's end.
