3 EMERS Overview A Standards Based Management System
- Operational framework & centralized information system; setting institutional standards & conveying to staff - Has a prescriptive methodology for implementation and operations Web-based tool that provides our employees desktop access to EM policies, practices, and procedures Focuses on integrating information across the organization: Requirements, accountability, continual improvement, and performance Two primary objectives of a standards based management system are To facilitate the procedural lifecycle while Meeting corporate compliance requirments.

To get here, the system must be collaborative, on-demand, and centralized. To have the greatest positive impact across EM, the system will support a variety of key functions including: Maintenance of a complete set of procedures in response to changes in corporate environment, which can be updated in a streamlined fashion as regulations change Documentation of due diligence efforts Ability to communicate expectations to the workforce Logging of decision records for which EM employees have reviewed and approved EM’s implementation of policy and requirements Enterprise-level collaboration to enable diverse teams to work on multiple procedures Ability to provide adequate response to inquiries by documenting the history of procedure communications in order to provide records of which versions of procedures and polilcies were in effect on which dates Insight into areas requiring clarification or modification by tracking questions and cases against established procedures Support for corporate compliance by being able to manage the entire procedural and requirement lifecycle in alignment with organizational initiatives Line Internal Organization Operating Procedures (as Needed) Transaction Level

7 Functional Area Descriptions
EM responsibilities are divided into Functional Areas Functional Area Descriptions (FADs) identify scope, roles/responsibilities, pertinent requirements, and key supporting functions Translate full set of requirements into processes/procedures to accomplish work Organizationally neutral – reflect functional alignment When completed and issued through EMERS, these FADs and their supporting procedures will collectively describe how EM operates

8 Subject Areas and Procedures
Primary functional topics within a particular Functional Area Contain step-by-step instructions to implement requirements Provide direct links to existing systems, reference documentation, and other tools Contain links to any information required to execute procedure (one stop shopping)

9 Program Descriptions Identify where and how programmatic activities are implemented Developed when required by external customers to describe processes/operations Generally contain information that does not warrant specific procedural guidance Examples – Integrated Safety Management, Line Oversight, Human Capital Plan, etc. Examples: ISMS ISSM Quality Assurance Program Functional Area Owner responsible for Program Descriptions
