1. The Offeror’s or Bidder’s attention

is called to the “Equal Opportunity

Clause” and the “Standard Federal

Equal Employment Opportunity

Construction Contract Specifica-

tions” set forth herein.

2. The goals and timetables for

the Contractor’s aggregate work-

force in each trade on all construc-

tion work in the covered area, are as



Goals for minority participation for

each trade: 3.0%

Goals for female participation in

each trade: 6.9%

These goals are applicable to all of

the Contractor’s construction work

(whether or not it is Federal or

federally assisted) performed in the

covered area. If the Contractor per-

forms construction work in a geo-

graphical area located outside of the

covered area, it shall apply the goals

established for such geographical

area where the work is actually per-

formed. With regard to this second

area, the Contractor also is subject

to the goals for both its federally in-

volved and non-federally involved


The Contractor’s compliance with

the Executive Order and the regula-

tions in 41 CFR Part 60-4 shall be

in 41 CFR 60-4.3(a) and its efforts to

meet the goals. The hours of minori-

ty and female employment and train-

ing must be substantially uniform

throughout the length of the contract,

and in each trade, and the Contrac-

tor shall make a good faith effort to

employ minorities and women even-

ly on each of its projects. The

transfer of minority or female em-

ployees or trainees from Contractor

to Contractor or from project to pro-

ject for the sole purpose of meeting

the Contractor’s goals shall be a vio-

lation of the contract, the Executive

Order and the regulations in 41 CFR

Part 60-4. Compliance with the

goals will be measured against the

total work hours performed.

3. The Contractor shall provide writ-

ten notification to the Director of the

Office of Federal Contract Compli-

ance Programs (OFCCP) within 10

working days of award of any con-

struction subcontract in excess of

$10,000 at any tier for construction

work under the contract resulting

Northern States Power Company

Customer Credit – DOE Settle-

ment 2019


Case No. PU-21-89



April 1, 2021

On February 15, 2021, Northern

States Power Company (NSP) filed

a petition for approval to refund to

customers the eleventh payment

(approximately $689,356) received

December 22, 2020, arising from

USDOE’s inability to accept nuclear

waste under the federal Nuclear

Waste Policy Act.

NSP requests to combine the refund

of this eleventh payment with an in-

terim rate refund anticipated in the

latter half of 2021 in Case No.

PU-20-441, the NSP base rate in-

crease proceeding. NSP proposes

the refund would be a one-time bill


Alternatively, NSP suggests the

eleventh payment could be a

stand-alone refund in 2021 through

a one-time bill credit based on each

customer’s current usage. NSP esti-

mates this amount would be approx-

imately $2.75 to $3.00 per customer.

The issues to be determined in this

matter are:

1. Whether the eleventh settlement

payment refund should be combined

with any interim rate refund from

case PU-20-441 in a future bill


2. Whether NSP’s eleventh settle-

ment payment refund amount is just

and reasonable.

Comments and requests for a hear-

ing must be received by May 17,

2021. Persons desiring a hearing

must file a written request identifying

their interest in the proceeding and

the reasons for requesting a hearing.

If deemed appropriate, the commis-

sion can determine these matters

without a hearing.
