SRP cannot support a revision of the standard without knowing the specifics of what is to be revised and what it is to be revised to. Attachment 1 serves as a guideline to determine if the Reliability Standard should be converted to the results-based standards format.  It does not indicate what will be converted or what it would be converted to.

R1.1 – CSU does not understand the need to revise this sub-requirement.  CSU believes it is clear as written.

Colorado Springs Utilities, Segment(s) 6, 3, 5, 5/6/2015

Dominion believes that the EOP PRT is asking that the SDT to introduce a specific time requirement to be contained in R1.1. We do not agree, believing that the current standard leaves that determination to the entity based upon its specific circumstance; based to a large extent, on its relationships with other entities (especially those that can provide some level of oversight or monitoring of the affected entity area).

Agree. 

Item b.--Agree.

Item c.--Agree.

The current language is clear:  backup functionality to operate the power system is required for the  amount of time that it takes to restore the primary control center functionality.

We support the clarifying change to R1.1.  It seems to streamline the intent of the requirement.  Though perhaps the PRT could elaborate further on their thinking behind making this change as the intent of the change may be misunderstood.

The revision for R1, Part 1.1 appears to be gramatical in nature. It is unclear what the reasonings are for revisions to EOP-008-1. SRP does not see any other specifics in the recomendation for a revision.

While AEP does not object to the review of the standard for grammar, punctuation, syntax, etc., we would caution the team to not intentionally or unintentionally change the meaning of the standard or requirements to this recently vetted standard.

(1) The standard lacks a guideline and technical basis section.  The section should elaborate on the meaning of “annual” and “annually,” as well as provide guidance on instances when backup functionality takes longer than two hours to implement.

(2) Thank you for the opportunity to comment.

We would suggest capitalizing the term ‘control center’ in sub-parts of 1.5, 1.6 of Requirement R1, Requirement R2, Requirement R3, Requirement R4, Requirement R6, and sub-part 7.1 of Requirement R7. Also, we would suggest the PRT review the use of the term ‘facility’ in Requirement R3 when describing control centers and backup control centers or “sites where backup functionality is located”.  In some cases it may be appropriate to just remove the word “facility”.  For example remove it after the phrase “control center” in the first sentence of R1.  The use of the phrase “control center facility” could lead to different interpretations.

The reference to Power source(s) in R1.2.4 seems to indicate an inferred requirement for a backup facility to have redundant power sources.  Whatever the intent, it is unclear.  All of the other sub-requirements of R1 are explicitly required to be capabilities or tools that are required.  Redundant power sources is not mentioned in any other requirement.  We suggest the PRT review R1.2.4 for clarity.

In R2 we would like to see a change to clarify that the availability of the Operating Plan for the backup functionality can be available in hard copy or electronic copy at the primary and backup sites.  This would be similar to proposed changes in EOP-005-2 and EOP-006-2.

Texas RE is concerned that the standard does not require a notification to affected entities when a Reliability Coordinator, Balancing Authority, and Transmission Operator has experienced a loss of its primary or backup functionality and that anticipates that the loss of primary or backup functionality will last for more than six calendar months.   In addition, Texas RE believes that allowing an entity up to six calendar months to provide a plan to its Regional Entity when the functionality is lost, is excessive.  Texas RE recommends the “Compliance Monitoring Process” section be consistent with other Standards being reviewed.
