In the event that Hydro One files on a cost of service basis for 2014, is an adjustment required, and if so should a deferral account be set up at this time to capture any such adjustment?

Tab 16 - Issue 16 What are the terms, if any, of any true-up between the amounts collected under the ICM rate rider and the actual revenue requirement associated with approved ICM projects, and how should any difference between the proposed effective date of January 1, 2013 and the actual effective date approved by the Board be reflected in that true-up calculation?
