All instances of noncompliance with a NERC Reliability Standard require the submission of appropriate mitigating activities for evaluation and acceptance by Texas RE and NERC. To demonstrate appropriate mitigation, registered entities either file a formal Mitigation Plan or a description of the mitigation actions taken to remediate the issue and prevent recurrence.
If a registered entity intends to submit a Mitigation Plan, contact Enforcement staff at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss a proposed plan prior to submission of a Mitigation Plan in webCDMS.
Prior to contacting Enforcement staff, the entity should develop a comprehensive and effective Mitigation Plan in webCDMS, and select SAVE, rather than SUBMIT.
For detailed information regarding the process for developing and submitting formal Mitigation Plans, as
well as Texas RE’s review of such plans, please refer to the Mitigation Plan section in NERC's Appendix 4C to the
Rules of Procedure and NERC's
Registered Entity Self-Report and Mitigation Plan User Guide.
