A Mitigation Plan is an action plan developed by the Registered Entity and submitted to ReliabilityFirst to (1) correct a noncompliance with a NERC Reliability Standard and (2) prevent its reoccurrence.
Mitigation Plan Expectations
Mitigation Plans should contain both corrective and preventive actions to address the possible noncompliance.
Some form of root cause analysis should be included and a root cause must be specified. The root cause analysis should also be evident in the solution.
Even if some of the work in the Mitigation Plan has already been completed, it should still be included with Proposed and Actual Completion Dates for each milestone.
Major steps should appear in the milestones table.
Completion timeframes should be reasonable.
