    As noticed on December 4, 2015, the Commission has directed 
Commission staff to conduct a technical conference in the above-
referenced proceedings. The technical conference is scheduled for 
January 12, 2016, at the Commission's headquarters at 888 First Street 
NE., Washington, DC 20426 between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. (Eastern 
    In an order dated November 24, 2015,\1\ the Commission found that 
the assignment of cost allocation for the projects in the filings and 
complaints listed in the caption using PJM's solution-based 
distribution factor (DFAX) cost allocation method had not been shown to 
be just and reasonable and may be unjust, unreasonable, or unduly 
discriminatory or preferential. The Commission directed its staff to 
establish a technical conference to explore both whether there is a 
definable category of reliability projects within PJM for which the 
solution-based DFAX cost allocation method may not be just and 
reasonable, such as projects addressing reliability violations that are 
not related to flow on the planned transmission facility, and whether 
an alternative just and reasonable ex ante cost allocation method could 
be established for any such category of projects.
