The Commission encourages prospective forward auction bidders to review the sample data files, which provide:

  • an overall description of each file;
  • the data fields that are included;
  • definitions of the data elements in each field;
  • the data type;
  • examples; and
  • notes about the file.

The Public Notice emphasizes that the sample data files are for illustrative purposes and do not reflect any predictions or assumptions about the actual bidding in the Auction.
