Docket No. FA11-21-000
NERC 2012 Performance Audit
“Last night FERC and the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) issued a joint press release to announce that the Commission had approved a settlement between the FERC Office of Enforcement (OE) and NERC of all outstanding issues in the Office of Enforcement’s 2012 performance of NERC.
“I was very pleased to support the settlement, and I am confident that the procedures NERC and OE have agreed to will strengthen NERC as an organization.
“I would like to thank both the OE staff at FERC and NERC for their work in reaching this settlement. I look forward to continuing to work with NERC to improve the reliability and security of the electric transmission grid.”
