PURPOSE
Southern California Edison Company (SCE) submitted Advice 3961-E on February 28,
2019 to add a new Areawide Public Utility Contract for Electric Service, Energy
Management Services, and Services Provided Under the Appropriate Regulatory
Authority (Areawide Contract) between SCE and the United States Government
General Service Administration (GSA) to SCE’s List of Contracts and Deviations.1 This
Areawide Contract replaced the previous GSA Areawide Contract that expired on
January 26, 2019.2 The Areawide Contract is effective as of February 28, 2019, and will
continue for a period of 10 years unless terminated pursuant to Article 2.1 of the
Areawide Contract.
The purpose of this advice letter is to clarify for the California Public Utilities
Commission (Commission) that the term “Areawide Agreement,”3 when used within

Advice 3961-E was submitted pursuant to Commission General Order (GO) 96-B, General
Rule 9.2.3. Pursuant to GO 96-B, General Rule 7.5.3, the advice letter is effective pending
disposition.
Contract No. GS-00P-09-BS0-066 expired on November 26, 2018 but SCE and the GSA
executed an amendment to the contract that extended the expiration date to January 26,
2019 while finalizing this new 10-year Areawide Contract.
The terms “Areawide Agreement” and “Areawide Contract” are used interchangeably
throughout SCE’s tariffs.

ADVICE 4035-E (U 338-E) -2- July 10, 2019 SCE’s various deviated interconnection agreements for federal agencies4 refers to the new Areawide Agreement (Areawide Contract No. 47PA0419D0008) submitted within Advice 3961-E, rather than the previous Areawide Agreement (Areawide Contract No. GS-00P-09-BSD-0666)5 that was effective when the Commission approved SCE’s various deviated interconnection agreements for federal agencies and which has since been replaced by the new Areawide Agreement. This clarification is necessary because the Areawide Agreement is incorporated by reference into SCE’s various deviated interconnection agreements for federal agencies, and to avoid future contractual disputes, it is important that both interconnection customers and the Commission understand that the term “Areawide Agreement” refers to the new Areawide Agreement. BACKGROUND Under the Federal Acquisition Regulations, Federal agencies are provided utility services under an Areawide Contract in cases where the value of services provided by the contractor (i.e., the utility) exceeds $250,000 per year. The Areawide Contract is the “master contract entered into between the Government and Contractor to cover the Service acquisitions of all Federal agencies in the franchised certificated service territory from Contractor for a period not to exceed 10 (ten) years,” (see Article 1.1.(c) of the Areawide Contract). In general, the Areawide Contract conforms to existing SCE rules. It contains provisions for such matters as advance payment for certain services, electronic billing, and other matters. The Areawide Contract establishes the basis for electric service as well as government investment in demand-side management. The Areawide Contract also specifies the promotion of small businesses and requires the use of competitively bid awards for sub-contractors who provide conservation services, among other things. By pre-establishing conditions of service, the collaborative working relationship between SCE and the Federal Government is facilitated. There are no costs associated with the Areawide Contract. No cost information is required for this advice letter. This advice letter will not increase any rate or change, cause the withdrawal of service or conflict with any other schedule or rule. TIER DESIGNATION Pursuant to GO 96-B, Energy Industry Rule 5.1, this advice letter is submitted with a Tier 1 designation. 4 5 SCE has submitted several advice letters over the years requesting approval of deviations to certain interconnection agreements for federal agencies and the United States Armed Forces (Armed Forces). See Advice 2704-E, Advice 2716-E, Advice 2938-E, Advice 3283E, and Advice 3467-E. See Advice 2381-E and 2381-E-A.
