Peer reviews lend the knowledge and expertise to assist fellow utilities
A member may request a peer review in almost any area of operations. FMPA will help organize a group of qualified volunteers to conduct the review and prepare a written report of their recommendations. Members who have used this service in the past have received valuable information on important topics, such as transmission and distribution, billing and customer services, finance, meter reading, computer operations and generation operations. The participation of each member of the inspection team and the core review team is funded by each respective member city. Per diem expenses are paid by the member requesting the peer review assistance.
