As noted above, provision of some of the records you have requested would be costly.BC Hydro's accounts payable system migrated from one computer application to anotherat the end of fiscal year 2010. Payment records of the sort that you've requested forfiscal year 2010, and a small portion of fiscal
2011,
would need to be researched on apartially-manual basis, as would information about whether or not a particular contractduring that period was direct-award/no-bid in nature - all of which would be a timeconsuming process sometimes involving remotely located hard-copy files.With these factors in mind, the cost to collect, retrieve, and produce the requestedrecords subject to a fee is estimated to be $5,676.27. Details regarding this calculationare provided in the table attached to this letter. Please note that BC hydro hascalculated this fee based on the actual cost of providing the requested records asprescribed for commercial applicants in Schedule
1
of B.C. Regulation 155/2012,associated with the Act. The figures in the attachment represent a rough estimate of theamount of time it would take us to gather and prepare the requested information. If wewere able to collect and prepare this information in less time, or it took more time, thefee estimate would be reduced, or raised, accordingly.Please note also that, at this stage of request processing, it is very difficult to estimatehow many responsive records might be located. Were the fee to be
paid,
andprocessing continue through to provision of responsive records, a copying charge of$.06 per page provided would be added to the fee.Please also note that some of the records requested could contain information that issubject to one or more of the exceptions to disclosure contained in the Act. Suchrecords would likely be partially redacted, or entirely withheld.If you would like BC Hydro to go ahead with the processing of the portion of your requestthat is subject to a fee, please forward a deposit of $2,838.14 in a cheque or moneyorder payable to BC Hydro. Once we receive the deposit, we will resume processing thefee-applicable portion of your request. If we do not receive the fee deposit from youwithin 30 days, we will close our file on the fee-applicable portion of your request.If you were to pay the fee, and the processing of the request were to proceed, in all

nectary for BC Hydro to consult
with
third parties. This could
take some time. That consultation process, and the volume of records that would needto be searched regarding the fee-applicable portion of your request, would, uponpayment of the deposit, likely result in BC Hydro extending the due date for the feeapplicable portion of your request for 30 days under paragraphs 10(1)(b) and (c) of theAct.If BC Hydro were to find that more time were needed to process this request, Hydrowould seek a further extension from the Office of the Information and PrivacyCommissioner for BC (OIPC). If a further extension were sought, BC Hydro wouldadvise you in writing — in order to give you an opportunity to provide comments to theOIPC.British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority, 333 Dunsmuir Street, Vancouver, BC, V6B 5R3www.bchydro.com
