Transmission Rights Auction System Upgrade Project (SE-76)

​The transmission rights auction (TRA) system is a web-based application that is accessed through the IESO web portal. This system is used by transmission rights market participants to view details of future transmission rights auction rounds, to place bids and to view, change or delete bids that have already been submitted. The existing hardware and software technologies used to support the TRA system need to be upgraded.

This initiative will be of specific interest to all market participants who participate in the transmission rights auction.

This stakeholder engagement plan has been developed to define the opportunity for stakeholder involvement in the upgrade of the transmission rights auction system.
