2014 Capital Investment Review
Information for the combined 2016 CIR and IPR process can be found on the Integrated Program Review webpage.
Overview of CIR
​The Capital Investment Review process allows interested parties to review and comment on BPA's draft Asset Strategies and 10-year capital forecasts. The CIR occurs every two years prior to the Integrated Program Review (IPR). The CIR will cover transmission, federal hydro, facilities, information technology, energy efficiency, fish and wildlife, security, and fleet investments. We will release BPA's draft asset management strategies, and present a prioritized portfolio of investments for review and comment.
​What's Coming in 2014

  • BPA will collect public comments on draft asset strategies, proposed capital forecasts and project prioritization between February 21 and April 11. Comments will help inform the 2014 IPR for near-term capital spending forecasts and analysis supporting for the Debt Management process.
