Release planning analyzes the impact of initiatives

The release planning process assesses market initiative implementation impacts to determine target timeframes, project milestones and other resource considerations. It is a collaborative process between the ISO and market participants to optimize the costs and benefits of the implementation approach prior to committing resources.

    A discussion forum for market initiative projects, including project milestones and project deliverables. Projects are managed through the Master Stakeholder Engagement Plan, with major releases twice a year and monthly releases of smaller enhancements.
