POLICY FRAMEWORK: Existing Policies and Issues Under Development



This page provides links to policies that BPA follows when fulfilling its fish and wildlife mission. Most are interpretative in nature as general statements of policy, agency organization, procedure, and practice. As such, they are typically subject to change without notice. However, because BPA's internal management of its fish and wildlife mission is a matter of great public interest, the agency allows for advance notice of policy changes when possible.

The rate case records of decision (RODs) included here embody many policy decisions and so are included here. The rate RODs are unique for BPA in that they are substantive rules promulgated pursuant to statute and may be changed only when following the statutory process outlined in section 7(i) of the Pacific Northwest Electric Power Planning and Conservation Act.
