Proven Compliance Solutions Inc. Attends and Co-Sponsors the 2018 NAGF Annual Meeting

Proven Compliance Solutions Inc. (PCS), industry recognized for excellence in North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) Reliability Standards Compliance Consulting Services and for its Standards Compliance Intelligence Portal, recently attended and co-sponsored the 2018 North American Generator Forum (NAGF) Annual Meeting.

Dale Zahn, PCS Director and 39-year industry veteran had the following to share regarding the NAGF, “Being a part of the NAGF event this year reminded me of the impact a group of industry experts, focused on the Generator Owner (GO) and Generator Operator (GOP) segment of the industry, can have in supporting the increased reliability of the Bulk Electric System (BES).  I was able to see first-hand their growth as an organization, their leadership, and their members’ determination to have representation and expertise applied to improvements of current NERC Standards.”

As part of PCS sponsoring the NAGF meeting, Dale had the opportunity to showcase the PCS Team, its NERC Compliance Support Services, and the PCS Standards Compliance Intelligence Portal (SCIP) to the attendees. Dale commented on the value of accessibility of compliance support vendors at events such as this.  “Just as the NERC Standards constantly change, so do the abilities of compliance consultants and compliance related technologies offered by industry vendors.  It was great to see the camaraderie among each of the vendors and for the attendees to have a variety of services and technologies options to explore.  I was very pleased to have the opportunity to walk through the value of SCIP with multiple GO/GOP entities.  I appreciate the NAGF providing time during the meeting for these interactions.”

PCS staff members have been in the business of Operations & Planning (O&P) and Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) program development, implementation, technical procedure writing, staff training, and mock audit/gap analysis projects since the inception of NERC mandatory compliance.  PCS team members fully understand the ramifications of non-compliance and are working with numerous clients in multiple NERC Regions throughout the U.S. and Canada to implement their O&P and CIP programs.  Over 60% of the Standards have been changed or created in the past two years. PCS understands the challenges associated with staying on top of the Standards and firmly believes the SCIP application is a vital tool for accomplishing this task.
