pre-1994 structure of separate gas and electric business units underscores
the points I've made in responses to the stories posted over the past few
Prior to the last major reorganization, the 'gas side of the house' had a
fully functional operating records management system, detailing all records
related to the transmission, storage and distribution systems. There was a
centrally controlled engineering records reference library, supported by
electronic indexes and redundant storage systems of records located in the
head office, operations, and divisions.
The decision to reorganize and 'blur the lines between gas and electric',
instead making the separation based on transmission and distribution, and
consolidation of staff prior to completing an analysis of what was done
where and by whom, is what resulted in a complete loss of the system/s of
Now, following a horrible disaster, loss of lives, a failure to maintain a
consolidated system of records and having to bare their collective souls...
they're paying out MILLIONS of dollars to 'departing executives'- seemingly
more than was paid out to the victims of the incident, but NOW they see the
evils of their ways.
Sigh... wonder if they are going to re-form the Gas Transmission and Storage
Records Management System? I know a model that worked excellently in the past
