Latest News

Proven Compliance Solutions Inc. Launches its “STANDARDS COMPLIANCE INTELLIGENCE PORTAL” for NERC O&P and CIP Guidance

Proven Compliance Solutions Inc. (PCS), industry recognized for its excellence in North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) Reliability Standards Compliance Consulting Services, is pleased to announce the industry launch of its Standards Compliance Intelligence Portal (SCIP).

Monitoring change is synonymous with the NERC Reliability Standards and Requirements. Monitoring reliability compliance activities could require 50 to 100 updates per month in order to maintain a continuously compliant program.  SCIP allows you to focus on your NERC registered functions without having to weed through all of the changes and developments that are not applicable to your Entity.  Through this application, you will realize a significant savings, both in time and expense.

SCIP is NOT a Software Solution, but rather a customized, user friendly, real-time application developed and managed by PCS’ Reliability Compliance Professionals.  Simply log into the web-based portal to view your Entity-specific Reliability Standards Under Development, recently Approved Standards and implementation dates, changes to NERC Rules of Procedure, regional criteria and protocols, industry news, as well as hot topics and other reliability compliance related items.

Crystal Musselman, PCS President and CEO and developer of SCIP, recently made a statement regarding SCIP:   
“Having been the compliance program manager for a utility, a major portion of my time was spent trying to locate and organize the ever changing and evolving NERC compliance activities.  The amount of effort spent reviewing articles, changes to standards and continuous NERC, FERC and Regional updates consumed much of my time.  SCIP organizes information in a way to allow an individual to see the entire picture in one place.  This is especially relevant to Standards Under Development where NERC or a Region may include webinars or other activities related to the project.  SCIP also includes PCS customized input for each Client related to how the changes or new developments affect their programs and operations.  Clients that are currently using SCIP have found it to be a valuable asset and time saving resource.”

If you and/or your compliance team would like to see a SCIP demo, call PCS today and we will get you scheduled!

Along with SCIP, PCS provides a full range of Reliability Standards compliance support.  PCS NERC Compliance Consulting Services has an unsurpassed track record in Regional Audit success.  Whether your need for support is in the area of Operations and Planning Standards or Critical Infrastructure Protection Standards for your Utility, Generation Facility, Solar Facility or Wind Facility, PCS provides the technical expertise and program management support you desire.  PCS delivers compliance interpretations based on extensive auditing experience, coupled with programs and processes that provide you confidence in the compliance status of your organization.

For information on how PCS can support your organization’s NERC Reliability Standards compliance needs and to request a SCIP Demo, please contact Dale Zahn at (262) 436-4116 or visit our website at www.provencompliance.com.
