Key readiness documents

The 5MS and GS Market Readiness Strategy is the overarching plan to guide AEMO and NEM participants’ readiness activities. It sets out the approach for:

  • Managing,
  • Coordinating,
  • Informing,
  • Monitoring, and
  • Reporting.

The strategy covers both AEMO’s and NEM participants’ operational preparedness for 5MS and GS. It particularly relates to the business process and IT system changes necessary for a smooth transition to the new market arrangements.

The Market Readiness Strategy is supported by a series of documents which each cover a specific area of readiness (refer to the document list below).
