Migration of Transmission Rights Auction Application into the Web Portal (SE-11)Over the next 3-5 years, the IESO will proceed with a large-scale program to enhance existing web-based tools and processes. The most significant component of the IESO’s web enhancement will be deployment of web portal technology which will integrate all IESO web-based technologies, including the current Market Participant Interface. The IESO will be moving applications into the portal infrastructure as new applications are developed or existing applications are replaced. The first Market Participant application to be moved into the portal is the Transmission Rights Auction system.
This Stakeholder Plan only relates to the migration of the Transmission Rights Auction application into the Web Portal which is planned for June, 2006. Additional information on the portal project, including past consultation, can be found on the IT Standing Committee home page.
While there will be no functional changes to the Transmission Rights Auction application, the new Transmission Rights page will offer market participants a one-stop shop for information relating to the auction - such as links to reports, calendars, announcements and other related data. Once migrated, the Transmission Rights Auction system will only be available through the Web Portal and it will be decommissioned from the current Market Participant Interface (MPI).
Transmission Rights Auction users accessing the Transmission Rights Auction application through the Web Portal will require a new digital certificate (version 7). The current version of digital certificate (version 6) that participants now use to access the existing Transmission Rights Auction application (via the Market Participant Interface) will not operate within the portal. Conversely, only the current version of the digital certificate (version 6) will operate within the MPI, thereby requiring Transmission Rights participants who continue to access information within the current MPI or submit real-time bids and offers to have both versions of certificates.
The IESO plans to upgrade the existing MPI in September, 2006, which will allow access to both the newer certificate (version 7) and current certificate (version 6).
