Development Principles ● All meetings of the DT shall be open to the public and broad participation is encouraged. ● All participants eligible to vote at a WECC Standing Committee retain full opportunity and representation to vote on the final document when presented at the Standing Committee. ● Nothing in these Development Principles shall infringe on an individual’s rights to appeal a Standing Committee vote regarding the resultant document. ● All DT members are encouraged to always be present; proxy voting by a DT member is not allowed. ● The Process does not require a quorum to be present before a DT vote is taken. ● The Process does not require notice that a DT vote will be taken. ● The Process does not require notice that a DT subset group will meet.
Development Principles ● It takes only a simple majority to carry a vote on any DT issue. ● DT voting may take place face-to-face, electronically, in real-time or within a scheduled window. ● Voting on which position to adopt on a drafting issue is reserved for the DT members. ● Voting on inclusion or exclusion of specific language in the document under development is reserved for the DT members. ● Voting on minutes and related business motions is reserved for the DT members. ● Straw Polls are of excellent advisory value but the DT is not obligated to abide by a straw poll.

Regional Criterion Structure ● Compliance For a “criterion”, a Compliance section is not needed. No Violation Severity Levels No Violation Risk Factors No civil penalty ● Ten Benchmarks for Excellence NERC has created a benchmark that can be used by any team to know if their work product meets the goals http://www.nerc.com/files/NERC_Drafting_Team_Guidelines_Endorsed_by_ SC_April2009.pdf http://www.nerc.com/files/NERC_Drafting_Team_Guidelines_Endorsed_by_ SC_April2009.pdf
