FAQ-39: Schedule Specificity for Baseline Assessment Plans

Go To FAQ#:

Question: What specificity does OPS expect for schedules in baseline assessment plans?

Answer: OPS expects to see a viable, active planning and scheduling process that is likely to result in assessments being performed in the relative sequence identified by risk assessment. OPS will review an operator’s process for managing its baseline assessment schedule. The degree of specificity of assessment schedules will vary depending on how far in the future assessments are planned.
