permissible exchanges between TFEs and MFEs. Intranet Website link to Gas Joint Meeting & Checklist and
Electric Joint Meeting & Checklist
Date: April 29, 2019 Page 10
conduct a periodic review of passwords, firewalls, and other security
measures to ensure that the integrity of the information systems is
maintained. Such measures include:
(i) Transmission Function Information that is accessible via Dominion
Energy’s Intranet Website shall be protected from access by MFEs. The
IT department will ensure that the appropriate MFEs do not have access
to Transmission Function Information on Dominion Energy’s Intranet
(ii) Transmission Function Information accessible via Dominion Energy’s
computer systems shall be protected from access by MFEs. MFEs are
identified with an “M” after their name in the telephone directory and email.
TFEs are identified with a “T” after their name in the telephone
directory and e-mail.
(iii) An automated program monitors employee terminations and transfers
daily and sends a notification to the CCO (or its designee) or applicable
system administrators when a qualifying event occurs. When applicable,
the CCO (or its designee) will adjust access to all affected computer
systems, physical facilities and employee e-mail addresses to prevent
inclusion on prior distribution lists.
IX. Additional Employee Responsibilities
1. All Dominion Energy employees are individually responsible for strict
compliance with Standards of Conduct and these Procedures. Dominion
Energy does not condone or tolerate violations of the Standards of Conduct.
Employees who fail to comply with these Standards of Conducts may be
subject to disciplinary actions up to, and including, termination. In addition to
the requirements set forth in these Procedures, all employees are asked
when appropriate to consider the safeguards described below.
2. Prior to sharing Transmission Function Information with any Dominion Energy
Employee outside of the Transmission Provider organization, employees should
check to see whether the recipient is allowed to receive the Transmission
Function Information under Standards of Conduct. If you are unsure about
whether the information is Transmission Function Information, or whether the
requestor is an MFE, consult the Company Directory, ask your supervisor or
contact the Law Department - Federal Regulation.
3. Employees should clearly mark all e-mails, documents or other communications
that contain Transmission Function Information with the following header or
another substantially similar message: “This communication contains FERC
Date: April 29, 2019 Page 11
Order 717 Transmission Function Information that must be kept
confidential. DO NOT copy or forward to any Marketing Function
Employee without express clearance from Dominion Energy’s Law
4. When possible, Employees should protect Transmission Function Information
that is sent via an electronic method with passwords or non-copying/nonforwarding
features enabled. Employees are encouraged to use the Code of
Conduct Classification Tool within the Company’s electronic mail application.
This functionality enables users to easily classify messages that contain
sensitive content, such as Transmission Function Information. Once the sender
marks a message as sensitive and the message is sent, the mail system
validates each recipient prior to delivery to prevent any violation. This tool is
available to all Dominion Energy Employees. Employees can find more
information on this tool on the FERC Policy and Compliance SharePoint site on
Dominion Energy’s Intranet Website.
5. All Employees also must strictly comply with the “No Conduit” rule. The “No
Conduit” rule means that although certain employees may have access to
Transmission Function Information, they may never be a “conduit” or pass this
Transmission Function Information to MFEs. In particular, employees of
Marketing Affiliates who are not considered MFEs must be diligent not to pass
any Transmission Function Information to MFEs. Also, employees who provide
a corporate service function for both the Transmission Provider and Marketing
Affiliates should not pass Transmission Function Information to any MFE.
6. In summary, Employees should abide by the following requirements:
Know the extent of access you have to Transmission Function Information.
Never act as a “conduit” by providing this information to an MFE.
If you are uncertain about whether the information is Transmission Function
Information, or whether the requestor is an MFE, consult the Company
Directory, ask your supervisor, or the Law Department - Federal Regulation.
Make sure Transmission Function Information received from the
Transmission Provider is clearly marked as such to prevent inadvertent
sharing of information.
Err on the side of caution by playing it safe and sharing Transmission
Function Information only with employees who are clearly TFEs.
B. Marketing Function Employees:
1. MFEs must be aware of the information restrictions and the Independent
Functioning Rules that apply between TFEs and MFEs. Generally, MFEs may
not have access to Transmission Function Information unless it is obtained via a
public source (e.g., the Internet Website). Also, MFEs must operate separately
Date: April 29, 2019 Page 12
from the TFEs.
2. In practice, MFEs should abide by the following requirements:
Do not gain or attempt to gain access to Transmission facilities, including
computer systems, or Transmission Function Information by any means. If
you have access to Transmission facilities or Transmission Function
Information or if you feel you have received access inappropriately, do not
review the information and report the incident immediately to your supervisor,
or the Law Department - Federal Regulation.
If Transmission Function Information is obtained inadvertently or otherwise in
violation of the Standards of Conduct or these Procedures, do not use the
information in any capacity and report the incident immediately to your
supervisor, or the Law Department - Federal Regulation.
