November 25, 2015: Application for Revised Time Stamp

In follow-up to the November 18, 2015 notification regarding the FIT 4 revised time stamp process, the amended FIT rules, standard definitions and contract, version 4.0.2 have been posted. These documents have been updated to incorporate the revised time stamp process details. Specifically, the amendments that have been made include:

  • Section 3A.1 has been added to the FIT rules to outline the revised time stamp process;
  • Definitions for “Eligible Applicant”, “Eligible Application”, “FIT Rules, Version 4.0.2”, “Revised Time Stamp”, “Application For Revised Time Stamp”, and “Time Stamp Application Period” were added to the standard definitions;
  • The definitions for “Application Date”, “Application Start Date”, and “Terminate” were amended in the standard definitions to align with the FIT Rules, and;
  • Minor conforming changes made to the FIT contract.

The revised time stamp process, now defined as the “Time Stamp Application Period” per the standard definitions, version 4.0.2, will commence on Wednesday, December 9th, 2015 at 12:00:00 p.m. EPT and will close on Friday, December 11th, 2015 at 5:00:00 p.m. EPT. During this time, applicants who have active FIT 4.0.1 applications need to to log in to their “My FIT Home Page” and request a revised time stamp for their application(s). Prior to the beginning of the time stamp application period, the “My FIT Home Page” will be unavailable and all existing time stamps issued during the FIT 4.0.1 application period of October 5, 2015, through October 23, 2015, will be deleted from an applicant’s page. These existing time stamps will be of no force or effect under the amended FIT rules. For further details regarding this process please see the Revised Time Stamp Process Guidance Document.

Only applications that were submitted during the FIT 4.0.1 application period and that have not been withdrawn or terminated prior to the revised time stamp submission period will be eligible to participate. This will be indicated by the “Under Review” status assigned to the eligible application on the “My FIT Home Page.” No further hard copy materials will be required or accepted as part of the revised time stamp process. When the application review process is complete, all eligible applications will be ranked based on their priority points and revised time stamp.

While making this process as straightforward as possible, the IESO regrets the inconvenience caused for FIT 4 applicants. Please read the FAQ  document and continue to monitor the FIT website as well as your “My FIT Home Page” for updates and important details regarding this process.

My FIT Home Page Maintenance

The My FIT Home Page will not be accessible from December 6, 2015 to December 9, 2015 when the Application For Revised Time Stamp process begins. Once the Application For Revised Time Stamp process concludes on December 11, 2015 it will again be unavailable until December 14th, when normal functionality will be restored. During these periods a maintenance page will appear and users will not be able to log into the My FIT Homepage to the FIT Registration Portal.
