It seems as if some people may be using the various Task Group
reports, especially the Task Group Report on Relationship
Designators, as if they were PCC approved documentation or
guidelines. This is just a reminder that Task Group reports should
NEVER be used in this way. The reports posted on the
PCC website contain the recommendations of the Task Group alone.
Any final recommendations that have been accepted after being vetted
through you and OpCo will be posted as separate documents. There
are always a number of Task Group recommendations that may not be
accepted, may be deferred, or may be altered. The reports may also
contain typographical errors and may not mesh with other reports
posted on the PCC site. Only documents distributed or posted as
official PCC policy or LC/PCC PSs can be considered as such.
I realize that there may be questions unanswered by this
documentation, though. It will be very important for you to raise
your questions to the appropriate list so that we can incorporate
ithem into the pertinent documentation or training program. Thanks
so much for your help! We're all making our way through a time of
enormous transitions and PCC will do its best to keep your
documentation as timely and as accurate as possible.
