P393 ‘Disapplication of Supplier Charge SP01’
Formal title: Disapplication of Supplier Charge SP01
P393 seeks to set Supplier Charge SP01 to zero in BSC Section S Annex S-1
Currently over 90% of total Supplier Charges are levied against SP01 ‘Delivery of Routine Performance Monitoring Reports’. Supplier Charges are intended to charge Parties where they fail to meet certain performance levels, and redistribute such funds to disadvantaged Parties. However, the non-submission of Performance Assurance Reporting and Monitoring System (PARMS) reports does not directly disadvantage other Parties. Therefore, the application of Supplier Charge SP01 does not clearly align to the objective of Supplier Charges.

The BSC Panel raised BSC Modification P393 at its meeting on 10 October 2019, and the Report Phase Consultation ran over the period 14-30 October 2019 inclusive.
A Performance Assurance Framework (PAF) Review update paper was presented to the Performance Assurance Board (PAB) at its meeting on 25 July 2019, outlining options for addressing Supplier Charge SP01 in advance of the recommendations of the main Supplier Charges review. The PAB agreed that Supplier Charge SP01 should be set to zero. At its meeting on 26 September 2019, the Performance Assurance Board (PAB) unanimously recommended to the BSC Panel that P393 be raised and progressed directly to the Report Phase for Report Phase Consultation.
P393 will be presented to the BSC Panel for decision at its meeting on 14 November 2019.
