Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines the results of the latest NERC Performance Survey delivered at last May’s Member Representatives Committee (MRC) meeting. In it, the ERO attained the strongest marks for the personnel certification program, and the competency of auditors and internal control evaluation staff. They received comparatively poor results for the cost effectiveness of the reliability standards and the impractical overhead required to implement them

The actions emerging from the NERC performance survey have been incorporated into departmental goals and some appear in the 2019 Work Plan. Further updates will be reported throughout the year, with a major status review scheduled for November.
