More SSP Edit Updates

May be I should just be more patient in reporting updates on the CFATS web site. No, I just can’t do it; my Mama taught me to share. This afternoon DHS-ISCD updated two pages on the CFATS web site with information about the CSAT SSP Edit Process User Guide that was re-posted yesterday afternoon.

The CSAT Site Security Plan page has been updated with a link to the new User Guide. No other changes were made on this page. The User Guide was now upgraded to an explanation in the ‘Latest News’ section on the CFATS Knowledge Center page. That explanation is a very well written summary of the document that deserves to be printed in full here (just wish that I had written it).
“A new SSP-Edit function is now available that will allow a facility to retrieve and make administrative or technical edits to its most recently submitted Site Security Plan. Administrative edits can be made at any time and there is no limit to the number of times administrative edits can be made. Technical edits can only be made 90 days or more after an SSP has been submitted. Editing a previously submitted SSP will not affect any applicable deadlines under the CFATS regulations unless DHS notifies the facility to the contrary. See the CSAT SSP Edit Process Users Guide posted under “Documentation” below for details.”
Still no FAQ listed for this, but ISCD does not pre-publish FAQ (though some of them may be written ahead of time), the wait until some user contacts the help-desk with some sort of question about the editing process. So we’ll just have to wait until CFATS facilities start to look at their information
