Align Update: Secure Evidence Lockers - Updated Specifications as of April 29, 2020
As noted in the January 27th stakeholder webinar and supporting materials, the ERO Enterprise will be implementing a Secure Evidence Locker (SEL) in conjunction with Release 1 of Align. Several registered entities voiced interest in implementing a registered entity SEL as an alternative to the ERO Enterprise SEL. In response to this interest, the Align project team is providing a functional specification document for any registered entity SEL. You may access the specification by clicking here or under Important Documents in the right hand column of this web page.
All stakeholders are welcome to review the specifications. If you have comments or questions, you may submit those to AskAlign@nerc.net.
A final version of this document was posted on April 29, 2020.
The project team continues to update the Align FAQ
page with incoming questions submitted by stakeholders. Updates to FAQs are posted on a frequent basis so check back often. A new search feature was added to aid in finding answers to specific topics or keywords.

Specifically, the webinar walked through the ERO Enterprise’s
approach to collecting and maintaining CMEP information and ERO Enterprise work
papers and workflow within the Align tool, along with enhancements to existing
work paper development processes to support conclusions without the need to
store data for extended periods. Finally, the webinar introduced and
explained an evidence locker technology approach, separate from Align, where
registered entity evidence will be submitted.
Questions about the content in the webinar can be submitted
directly to the project team via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All questions are welcome. Answers to common questions will be compiled and posted to the Align FAQ
page on January 31, 2020, and once weekly thereafter. Emails to email@example.com will monitored and individual replies will be limited to any needed clarification.
