arbcombo -- February 2013 Auction Participation Reminder Posted: 08 Jan 2013 13:16:23
The California Air Resources Board reminds all interested parties of the steps required to participate in the February 19, 2013 greenhouse gas allowance auction (February 2013 auction). You must take affirmative steps to participate in the February 2013 auction, even if you participated in the November 2012 auction. Important: If an organization does not complete the required steps below by the applicable deadlines, they will not be able to participate in the February 2013 auction. Step 1: Select the CITSS Auction Participation Box (Must be completed by January 21, 2013) A Primary Account Representative (PAR) or Alternate Account Representative (AAR) must select the Auction Participation box for your organization in the CITSS. ARB recommends the Auction Participation box be selected no later than January 11, 2013 to ensure adequate time to complete the remaining steps. The Auction Participation box must be selected no later than 31 days prior to the February 2013 auction (January 21, 2013). To select the Auction Participation box, you must: -Log in to the CITSS (https://www.wci-citss.org). -Select the “View” button for your organization’s General Account. -Select the “Account Detail” button for your organization. -Select the “Auction” tab. -Select the “Auction Participation” box on for your organization. If the box shows a checkmark, it has previously been selected by another account representative. In this case you do not need to make any changes. For more information on the CITSS, including user manuals, visit: www.arb.ca.gov/citss. For CITSS help desk support, please contact the California CITSS Help Desk at: email@example.com or by phone at: 1-866-682-7561. Step 2: Access the Auction Platform (Must be completed by January 22, 2013) If your current organization’s Primary or Alternate Account Representatives have not activated a user account in the Auction Platform (for example for the November 2012 auction) an email with the Auction Platform user account activation instructions will be sent to the account representatives the next business day following completion of Step 1 in the CITSS. Each representative receiving a user account activation email that may bid in the February 2013 auction should activate their Auction Platform user account within 24 hours of receipt of the email. All Primary and Alternate Account Representatives must activate an Auction Platform user account in order to receive email notifications and to be able to log into the Auction Platform. If a representative has previously activated their user account, they will not receive an email from the Auction Platform. They may proceed directly to Step 3 and login to the Auction Platform using their previously established credentials.

Step 3: Complete the auction application or confirm an intent to bid (Must be completed by January 22, 2013) To participate in the February Auction, a PAR or AAR must complete an auction application (first time participant) or intent to bid confirmation (previous participant) for your organization in the Auction Platform. Each entity intending to bid in the February 2013 auction must complete an auction application or confirm their intent to bid by 11:59 PM P.T. January 22, 2013. ARB recommends you complete this process no later than January 18, 2013, to ensure this step is completed by the deadline. To complete the auction application or confirm your organization’s intent to bid, you must: -Log in to the Auction Platform (https://www.wci-auction.org). -Confirm your organization’s intent to bid. -Verify your organization’s entity and account representative information transferred from the CITSS. Any necessary changes must be made in the CITSS and, if required, approved by the California Registrar prior to completing the auction application. -Provide information on the format of the bid guarantee to be submitted. -Complete the required attestation and submit the auction application or intent to bid. For more information on the Auction Platform, including user manuals and auction support contact information, visit: https://www.wci-auction.org. Step 4: Submit the Bid Guarantee (Must be completed by February 7, 2013) Each entity intending to bid in the February 2013 auction must submit a bid guarantee by February 7, 2013, 2:00 PM PT. ARB recommends you complete this process once you receive notification that an account is established with the Financial Services Administrator, to ensure this step is completed by the deadline.
