"In October 1991, the National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC) charged the Energy Task Force to assist Office of the Manager, National Communications System (OMNCS) efforts with energy initiatives in coordination with the Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Communications System (NCS). Specifically, the task force was charged to develop criteria for identifying critical industry national security and emergency preparedness (NSIEP) telecommunication facilities that qualify for electric service priority restoration and priority fuel distribution and to develop a process for applying the criteria to identify critical industry NSIEP telecommunication facilities. This review is included as Volume I of the report. In December 1991, the Industry Executive Subcommittee (IES) modified the original task force charge to include an additional tasking. Specifically, the task force was charged to review the President's National Energy Strategy (NES) from the perspective of benefits to NSIEP telecommunication enhancements and to develop NSIEP telecommunication energy concerns/issues for incorporation into DOE's next issue/update of the NES. This review is included as Volume I1 of the report."
