  ORDER DENYING IN PART AND GRANTING IN PART THE ACTIVITY'S
 APPLICATION FOR REVIEW
 
    On April 1, 1986, the U.S. Department of Energy, Federal Energy
 Regulatory Commission (Activity), filed a timely application for review,
 pursuant to section 2422.17(a) of the Authority's Rules and Regulations,
 seeking to set aside in part the Regional Director's Decision and Order
 on Petition for Clarification of Unit in the above-named case.  In
 support thereof, the Activity contends that compelling reasons exist
 within the meaning of section 2422.17(c) of the Authority's Rules and
 Regulations for granting the application with regard to the Regional
 Director's determination that 40 employees should be included within the
 unit and his refusal to pass on the unit status of 6 disputed
 individuals on the basis that the record contains insufficient evidence
 as to the duties they perform.
 
    Upon consideration of the Activity's application for review,
 including all arguments in support thereof, the Authority concludes that
