Purpose / Industry Need: In 2008, the FMWG set up a small advisory team to assess the need to create a DR function and a DR entity. That advisory team concluded that such a function and related functional entity were not justified at that time. The advisory team also suggested that the FMWG reconsider the issue when developing Functional Model Version 5 (FM V5). The advisory team recommended consideration of assigning such functions and responsibilities to functions and entities already defined in the Functional Model.
During its development of FM V5, the FMWG again concluded that there was no justification for defining a DR function and entity. The NERC Planning Committee approved FM V5 at its December 8-9, 2009 meeting and requested the FMWG reassess the need to include a DR Functional Entity in the Functional Model Version 6.
