Here's a link to the Energy Northwest webpage. http://www.energy-northwest.com/
I got information about the Energy Northwest from the Washington State Auditors webpage about audit reports they've done on Washington State agencies. http://www.sao.wa.gov/reports/auditfinding/frmAuditSearch.asp?opt=2
January 18, 2004 note: Energy Northwest didn't send names because of "identity thefts". I'll probably re-request the names, because in Nov 2002, the Wa St Court of Appeals, ruled that government employees names cannot be kept secret.
The way I understand identity theft, a person would need your name, plus some of the following, social security number, bank account number, credit card numbers, date of birth, spouses name and/or mothers maiden name.
Somebody persistent enough can find that information. The easiest way is through a persons garbage, but also medical records, employment records, vehicle accident records, credit reports, telephone and pud records, property records, a shopping card thru a grocers database, video rental card, church membership information, ect...
February 10, 2004 note: I re-sent to Energy Northwest a request to have the last names (no first names) included with the jobs titles and salaries. (see request at page bottom)
March 3, 2004 note: below is a list of the last names, job titles and salaries that Energy Northwest sent me. Energy Northwest employees are paid bi-weekly, once every two weeks or 26 times a year. 641 of the 1,282 Energy Northwest employees are paid more than $67,470 a year. 1,563 of the 3,231 BPA employees make more than $71,000 a year. After the alphabetical list of Energy Northwest employees, there is a list by highest to lowest salary (in bold type). You can see a smaller cleaner webpage about the Energy Northwest employees list at http://lbloom.net/xenergy04.html
June 22, 2004 note: I've deleted the energy northwest names and salaries until I've uploaded the new energy nw salary information. The old pages can be found in google cache.

Subject: Energy Northwest data
Energy Northwest sent you incorrect data in late February this year. We contacted you about a month later to tell you that we had made an error in calculating those salaries. You have logged these events on your website. We sent you the new data in late March. I contacted you in April and you said you would post this new data that week. It is still not posted that I could find and the old data is still posted. Can you please clean-up your site?
