An electric utility was preparing for a NERC CIP and O&P audit to take place within the next six months. The utility started to prepare for the audit and anticipated needing support as they had discovered a significant number of RSAWs, evidence, and workflows in various states. A significant number of data requests (100+) were expected soon. The utility also had several organization and staffing challenges, including: 

  • Only one SME had ever been through a NERC audit before
  • Evidence was spread across multiple locations and documentation was in various states
  • SMEs were unsure of what evidence should be provided to answer data requests
  • There was lack of knowledge in preparing RSAW narratives and in completing the NERC evidence request tool

  • Drafted and edited RSAWs
  • Provided SME with technical and compliance to support utility directly
  • Assisted and educated utility SMEs on which evidence should be provided to answer data requests
  • Provided coordination and alignment of documentation, NERC audit 101 training to utility SMEs, data request management and response support, and onsite technical and compliance support during the actual audit

  • Utility was able to answer auditor data requests in a timely manner and was prepared for the audit
