PCS’ audit success story is entirely attributable to its excellent staff
Brookfield, Wisconsin (PRWEB) December 02, 2014
Proven Compliance Solutions Inc. (PCS) is continuing its legacy of excellence in NERC Reliability Standards compliance support into its fifth year. Since forming in July of 2010, PCS has provided expert NERC compliance program development and implementation, gap analyses, mock audits, NERC/Regional audit support, including audit preparation, SME support, and post-audit support, as well as procedure writing, RSAW development, and on-site/off-site training for its clients. PCS’ record of supporting clients in successful audits is unsurpassed. Regional audit teams across the country recognize PCS’ approach to data organization when reviewing audit packages and provide positive feedback to PCS clients regarding this work. PCS-supported audits and pre-audit work has resulted in no unidentified potential violations for the documentation reviewed by the PCS team. PCS often identifies areas where improvements can be made, as well as areas of concern. Identified issues are resolved, mitigated, or self-reported, leaving no surprises when an audit team’s findings are received.
The challenges faced by registered entities experiencing compliance audits in 2014 have increased significantly. Audits are more in-depth and the experience of the regional audit team members has grown significantly since 2007. Beyond establishing and portraying a “Culture of Compliance,” the ability to show reliable operations through well written operating policies, procedures and the collection of appropriate evidence has been a key factor in the successful audits for PCS clients.
PCS President and Managing Partner, Crystal Musselman, emphasized, “PCS’ audit success story is entirely attributable to its excellent staff. The PCS team is a remarkable group of highly skilled individuals who continue to make our clients’ compliance experience uncomplicated, efficient and organized in a fashion that provides auditors confidence in the completeness and thoroughness of their program.” PCS consultants have decades of experience in generation, transmission, marketing, control systems, physical/cyber security, compliance management, industry committee participation and leadership that sets them apart in the industry.
The Reliability Assurance Initiative (RAI) brings many unknowns to 2015 and the outlook of compliance audits. PCS is prepared to assist entities with identifying and developing internal controls (most of which are already in place) and provide support that will enhance an entity’s next audit, self certification or spot check.
