Mitchell E. Needham, P.E., PCS Vice President – NERC O&P Consulting Services, shared the following after returning from a client site where he provided audit support:

“As the Regional Auditors were concluding the successful audit, one of the team members came up to me and stated, ‘You all have done a great job with these folks.  We recognize PCS work when we are auditing your clients’ sites.’  It’s great to hear those comments over and over again, because it means not only are we successful in our deliverables to our client, we know we’ve contributed to establishing a culture of compliance for our clients and their SMEs by helping them become more aware of their responsibilities and roles in providing greater reliability to the Bulk Electric System.”
