Michigan ARPSC 2005 - This is the Power Point Presentation that would have been shown at the April 2, 2005 DEC Meeting. Use this as a means to train new and future ECs or DECs in what is expected of them and how forms are to be filled out. During the meeting it was decided that the definitions were unclear as to what constituted the items on Line 9, 10 and 11 of the FSD-212. The DECs are currently working on defining these items such that all of Michigan is reporting in the same manner or a uniform manner. Just from looking at some of the reports there would seem to be some confusion as to what these items are and how to report them correctly at least in Michigan. As these definitions are defined by the DECs this PPT will be updated and corrected to reflect those values.

Michigan ARPSC Guidelines - ARPSC Guidelines document signed Sep 10, 2007, and a Powerpoint presentation ECs can use to roll it out.
