Preparing for a BSC Audit

Being unprepared for a BSC (Balancing and Settlement Code) audit can prove to be time consuming and costly for a supplier. The audit process looks into the complex system processes and algorithms that impact settlement accuracy within both your IT systems and the associated business processes.

We understand Settlement risks and Settlement exception management and the related business processes, and can help you ensure you are ready for a BSC audit by assessing and reviewing your preparation for the BSC audit visits.

A client approached Engage to perform a review of their readiness for a BSC audit, which Engage delivered through a workshop. The workshop covered:

Auditors Approach

Settlement Risks

Settlements Exception Management, including: D0095s Exceptions; 97% Performance; High/Excessive/Erroneous EACs and AAs; Energisation Status Mismatches; Rising 100kW Sites (Change of Measurement Class); and Annual Profile Class Review

Dataflows Rejections Management

The workshop was delivered successfully and the client subsequently approached and contracted Engage to deliver additional work which has included:

Managing their gas Annual Quantity review project
