CEII Certification

This process allows the requestor, once certified, to access the Secure Area of this web site and/or obtain certain CEII directly from the SERTP CEII Coordinator. Note that Base Cases and any underlying data are considered CEII and can only be obtained through this process. If the requestor desires access to both CEII and Confidential Non-CEII Information (or information that contains both types of information), certification from both processes is required. Steps to become certified for access to CEII information are listed below:

  1. Complete and submit the SERTP CEII Request Form, which you may submit by fax to 205-257-6654, via electronic email, or by mail to:
    Southeastern Regional Transmission Planning
    600 North 18th Street/13N-8812
    P.O. Box 2641
    Birmingham, Alabama 35291-8812
  2. Each individual employee or consultant who will have access to CEII distributed through the SERTP must successfully complete a background check, which is facilitated by Southern Company Services. A requestor must first submit the SERTP CEII Request Form (refer to item 1 above). Once the request form is received, a representative will contact the requestor to facilitate completion of the background check process and payment of applicable fees.

    In association with the background check, each company will be responsible for a one-time CEII application fee of $180.00. In addition, a background investigation fee of $100.00 will be required for each individual employee or consultant requesting access to CEII distributed through the SERTP.
  3. Execute the SERTP CEII Confidentiality Agreement(s), one for each entity (including affiliates) that will access CEII distributed through the SERTP.
  4. Each individual employee or consultant of an entity that will access CEII distributed through the SERTP must execute Appendix A or Appendix B (as appropriate) of the SERTP CEII Confidentiality Agreement executed by his/her employer.
  5. Once you are approved, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with a username and password through which you may access the secure area via the login button below.

Confidential Non-CEII Information Certification

This process allows the requestor, once certified, to access the Confidential Non-CEII Secure Area of this web site and/or to receive confidential non-CEII information directly from the sponsors, depending upon the nature of the request and the information provided. If the requestor desires access to both CEII and confidential non-CEII information (or information that contains both types of information), certification from both processes is required. Steps to become certified for access to confidential non-CEII information are listed below.

  1. Complete and submit the SERTP Confidential Non-CEII Information Request Form, which you may submit by fax to 205-257-6654, via electronic email, or by mail to:
    Southeastern Regional Transmission Planning
    600 North 18th Street/13N-8812
    P.O. Box 2641
    Birmingham, Alabama 35291-8821
  2. Execute the SERTP Non-CEII Confidentiality Agreement(s), one for each entity that will access confidential non-CEII information distributed through the SERTP.
  3. Each individual employee or consultant of an entity that will access confidential non-CEII information distributed through the SERTP must execute Exhibit 2 of the SERTP Non-CEII Confidentiality Agreement executed by his/her employer.
