Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines the latest annual Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement Program (CMEP) operating plan issued by NERC and the Regional Entities. A new format has been introduced that consolidates the continent-wide and regional processes into a single narrative (i.e.; there will no longer be Regional Entity-specific Implementation Plans). All that remains is for the links to the Regional Entity monitoring schedules to be posted in the Plan sometime in November
The success of NERC’s risk-based CMEP program will allow its continued application in 2020. Most of the ERO Enterprise’s focus will be on ensuring consistency between the Regions, developing guidance documents, and delivering tools that enhance program performance.
