Audit Schedule – NERC Standards, 693 and Critical Infrastructure Protection
Below is the link that includes a list of registered entities that are considered candidates for an Operations & Planning (O&P, 693) and Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) audit in 2014. The 2014 Annual Audit Plan differs from prior plans in that the Audit Schedule will not identify specific dates (other than the year) for the possible audits. If a registered entity will be audited, Texas Reliability Entity, Inc. (Texas RE) will provide adequate notice of the specific dates of any scheduled audit at least 90 days prior to audit commencement in accordance with the Rules of Procedure, Appendix 4C Section 3.1.1.
This updated approach provides a consistent treatment of all registered entities regarding the audit notification timeframe and allows for more flexibility to manage transitions both for a registered entity and the Regional Entity. Texas RE understands that the revised notification process is a change to past procedure and will work with registered entities as the ERO transitions to more efficient and effective processes.
