At SOS Intl, we use the NERC Compliance Monitoring and Evaluation Program (CMEP) as our foundation. We compare actual performance with potential performance and minimize compliance risk while making business improvement attainable - and sustainable.
At SOS, we have experience with various sizes of entities and regions, our consulting services are provided with minimal disruption to day-to-day business operations, and we give strong administrative support. Our auditor’s use risk based and performance based criteria for determining the scope of the Reliability Standards. Our aim is to improve our client's compliance controls, as well as, programs and procedures to assure actual performance of the stated programs, rather than relying solely on documentation to assure compliance. We consider risk broadly and include within our scope all NERC Reliability Standards, regional variations, operational issues, footprint changes, corporate restructuring, standards most violated, and determine gaps for each client. For clients with identified Critical Assets and Critical Cyber Assets, the SOS solution utilizes industry Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) experts to provide comprehensive CIP Compliance Services.
Using generally accepted accounting practices, our compliance consultants test the potency of client audit preparedness in a manner consistent with the NERC and regional audit processes. Our Subject Matter Experts will review your:
- North American and Regional Entity - most violated NERC Reliability Standards
- Culture of compliance
- Operational issues and footprint changes
- Registered functions trends and concerns
- Compliance plan documentation
- Evidentiary documentation
- Mitigation planning
- Monitoring process
