Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at the SAR for Project 2014-03, the initial development effort addressing FERC’s proposal to remand NERC’s Reliability Coordination and Transmission Operations projects. The project team expects to retain the goals of the two original projects – primarily to reduce redundancy and administrative overhead – while also fulfilling FERC’s directives.

In addition, they may take on the objectives of Project 2009-02 “Real-time Monitoring and Analysis Capabilities” which has a natural linkage to RC/TOP operations.

The initial draft of the Standards Authorization Request for Project 2014-03 has been posted for a 30 day review period. Clients have until March 24, 2014 to provide comments back to the drafting team.
