Also on May 30, 2014, immediately following the Special Member Meeting, ColumbiaGrid’s Board of Directors authorized ColumbiaGrid to execute the Variable Transfer Limits Functional Agreement and also authorized ColumbiaGrid to enter into an agreement with a vendor to perform the Statement of Work and Study Methodology developed by a collaboration between ColumbiaGrid members, NTTG’s members, PNGC, and CAISO to study VTL on the Northwest AC Intertie, Bonneville’s network system, and possibly the other Bonneville interties.

"In ColumbiaGrid, we now have the ability to resolve the three fundamental transmission questions: What transmission facilities should be built? Who should build them? Who should pay for them? With ColumbiaGrid's independent staff and process to resolve disputes, we can answer these questions effectively and in a timely fashion to facilitate our region's new resource development needs."
~~ Jeff Schlect, Manager, Transmission Services, Avista
