Texas RE has an important responsibility to ensure a highly reliable and secure bulk power system in the ERCOT Interconnection, and Texas RE recognizes the importance of maintaining high standards of ethical and professional conduct necessary to carry out its responsibility.
Texas RE operates under an Ethics and Conflicts of Interest Corporate Policy that requires Texas RE Board members, employees, and contractors or consultants performing delegated functions (collectively, Texas RE Representatives) to conduct Texas RE business and activities ethically, with integrity, and to refrain from situations where they have any conflict of interest.
Texas RE Representatives must conduct business and activities with total objectivity and not seek to obtain a personal or financial benefit from performance of their job or Board services. Texas RE Representatives are also required to follow strict confidentiality guidelines.
As part of Texas RE’s commitment to uphold its principles of business conduct, all Texas RE Representatives annually sign an Ethics Agreement requiring them (1) to avoid conflicts of interest and report any possible conflicts of interest, and (2) to maintain the confidentiality of registered entity and market participant confidential information in accordance with the NERC Rules of Procedure and the ERCOT Protocols.
Texas RE requests that you promptly notify us of any legal, ethical, or confidentiality violations by Texas RE Representatives. Anyone who has suspicions of such a violation should report it to Texas RE management, the Texas RE Legal Department, or through Texas RE’s confidential third-party reporting service, called the Ethics and Compliance Hotline. The Ethics and Compliance Hotline may also be used to report a possible violation of a NERC Reliability Standard or ERCOT Protocol by any entity. You may submit a report through the Ethics and Compliance Hotline at
www.EthicsPoint.com or by calling 1-888-242-6340. Reporting parties may choose to remain anonymous.
