Sample CROMERR Applications and Checklists
Please note that documentation from approved CROMERR applications is a reference primarily for developers and applicants pursuing custom-developed approaches. The examples below provide approaches that could meet CROMERR requirements, depending on how they are implemented and/or how they are combined with related system functionality and business processes. Adopting elements from these example approaches does not guarantee CROMERR compliance.
Please also note that these examples may not completely reflect current CROMERR functionality and/or business processes of the approved systems. Further, a state/locality may have other names for the system and/or the system may provide centralized CROMERR functionality for several other systems operated by the state/locality.
Alternatives to custom development are available. These alternatives generally offer reduced application burden, streamlined approval processes, faster time to production, and decreased ongoing maintenance costs.
