The IESO is a not-for-profit corporate entity established in the Electricity Act, 1998, which is under the jurisdiction of the Ontario Minister of Energy, Northern Development and Mines. Its fees and licences to operate are set by the Ontario Energy Board. In fulfilling its role as the province’s reliability coordinator, the IESO must comply with, oversee and enforce reliability standards and processes that are set by several regulatory bodies within and outside of Ontario.
All available procurement opportunities are posted on www.merx.com. Interested parties should refer to the Agencies, Crown & Private Corporations page for access to the IESO’s opportunities.
The IESO’s business activities and initiatives are guided by a strategic plan that describes four overarching goals for the IESO. This strategy informs the development of the IESO’s annual business plans, which provide an overview of the organization’s near-term activities and financial plans. The IESO tracks certain corporate performance measures to ensure the organization is meeting its performance targets.
From time to time, the Minister of Energy, Northern Development and Mines issues directives and letters to the IESO articulating government policy.
