The APPA Product Store has released Acquisition of New Power Supply: A Guide for Public Power Managers and Policymakers. This publication discusses important actions for public power utilities and joint action agencies to take when purchasing power from wholesale power markets. It focuses on the steps needed to develop a request for proposals (RFP) for power supply, solicit and evaluate bids, manage the RFP, and finalize deals.

The 26-page guide includes a sample RFP, notice of intent to bid, and trade press contacts. It was written by Kiah Harris, lead consultant (retired) at Burns & McDonnell, with contributions from American Municipal Power, Inc. and the Columbia Light & Water Department.
