Technical Audits

Technical audits are systematic and objective examinations of a program or project to determine whether environmental data collection activities and related results comply with the project's Quality Assurance Project Plan and other planning documents, are implemented effectively, and are suitable to achieve its data quality goals. Technical audits are not management assessments nor are they data verification/validation processes, which occur during the assessment phase of the project. Technical audits include readiness reviews, technical systems audits, surveillance, and performance evaluations.
