use of electric energy and to provide markets therefor by constructing, operating, maintaining and improving such power stations and transmission lines as may be necessary. Power generated at the Bonneville and Grand Coulee projects is distributed throughout Oregon and Washington. The Administration now wholesales power to the extent of approximately 50 percent of the entire electric power supply of the Pacific Northwest. The Administration also has been designated power marketing agent for new Federal dams to be constructed in the Columbia River Basin.

$ 400.5 General description. The Bonneville Power Administration, headed by the Administrator, is composed of a headquarters staff located at Portland, Oregon, and five district offices located at points in the Pacific Northwest. In addition there are several advisory boards and committees established to consult with and advise the Administrator on matters of program and policy, and to coordinate major programs of the Bonneville Power Administration with programs of other Government agencies engaged in related activities throughout the Pacific Northwest.

$ 400.6 Advisory Boards and Committees. (a) The Bonneville Act provides that the Administrator "shall act in consultation with an advisory board composed of a representative designated by the Secretary of War, a representative designated by the Secretary of the Interior, a representative designated by the Federal Power Commission, and a representative designated by the Secretary of Agriculture.” The Administrator regularly consults with the Board on matters of Administration policy and programs.

(b) The Columbia Basin Inter-Agency Gommittee was established by the Federal Inter-Agency River Basin Committee in 1946, to facilitate cooperation in the investigation and preparation of reports on multiple-purpose water projects and the correlation of the results of these investigations. The membership of the Columbia Basin Inter-Agency Committee is identical with the membership of the Bonneville Advisory Board and also includes a representative of the Department of Commerce.

(c) The Regional Advisory Council consists of a group of persons selected by the Bonneville Power Administrator by geographical areas in the region on the

basis of special technical, planning, and business knowledge and civic leadership.

It conducts investigations and prepares recommendations on programs relating to regional power resources and to needed generation and transmission facilities. It negotiates power contracts with the Administration's customers and develops and establishes rates, terms, and conditions for power sales and exchanges.

$ 400.13 Division Engineering. The Division of Engineering develops and executes policies relating to the engineering, operation and maintenance of the Bonneville Power Administration's electric transmission facilities. It designs and constructs additions to the Administration's power system. The Division operates all Administration electric power facilities, regulates stream flow by storage and release of waters, dispatches power through Administration and associated facilities in accordance with contractual provisions, and maintains all lines, substations, and other facilities. It coordinates the operation of the Administration's system with interconnected systems, and controls metering, relaying, testing, and communications.
