Responsiveness
Our responsiveness to our clients and their needs is our top priority. Each project has an assigned Project Manager who works directly with the client lead, assures everything is on track, and is the main point of contact for coordination of the project.
Knowledge
We have an extensive background and knowledge gained by working in the field of Reliability Standards compliance since and even before they became mandatory and enforceable by the initial FERC Orders. Using that knowledge, we have developed and successfully implemented both O&P NERC compliance programs, as well as full NERC CIP High/Medium and Low Impact Compliance Programs from the ground up. The quality, content, and organization of our work product, along with the qualifications and experience of our staff is unsurpassed.
Unique Experience
Our team is unique in that we have extensive expertise from both sides of the audit table, as well as in the implementation and management of NERC compliance programs. The PCS team includes a former NERC auditor, a former WECC CIP auditor, and five former compliance program managers, and a track record of excellence in Regional audits that sets us apart. The PCS staff has been in the business of program development and implementation, technical procedure writing, staff training, and mock audit/gap analysis projects since the inception of NERC mandatory compliance.
Success
The Compliance Programs developed by PCS have not only passed audit scrutiny, they have been acknowledged by Regional Auditors during client audits for their superior quality. Many auditors now recognize PCS’ work when conducting compliance audits. Our track record for audit and other compliance monitoring outcomes for our clients is exceptional. For all of the gap analyses, mock audits, and audit support activities conducted by PCS, there has never been an audit finding by a Regional Entity that was not already identified by PCS. Our understanding of the Regional audit approaches and focus is second to none.
Reputation
PCS has built a reputation of excellence. Compliance professionals regularly recommend PCS to their colleagues for our NERC compliance consulting services, including large CIP projects. For example, PCS was contacted to update and develop an effective High/Medium Impact CIP program by one of the largest entities in North America after hearing about our team’s experience and quality of services from industry peers. Engaging the organization’s leads and SMEs, taking the time to understand their operations, focusing the effort on making the program theirs, and helping them understand their roles are important keys to success that are included in the PCS process.
