FERC Issues Order on NERC Audit Report

On June 4, 2012, FERC issued an order on procedures related to addressing the forty-two audit recommendations developed by FERC staff as part of the audit of NERC.  NERC recommended that a paper hearing be held to address the audit recommendations in the Audit Report.  FERC found that a paper hearing in this proceeding is appropriate.  However, contrary to NERC’s recommended procedures, FERC stated that the paper hearing will also address the factual findings in the Audit Report that are in dispute.  FERC noted that NERC may be bound by any factual findings it does not challenge.
