EPA uses systematic planning to plan projects and link goals, cost and
schedule, and quality criteria with the final outputs. Systematic
planning ensures that all participants understand the needs and
expectations of the customer and the product or results to be provided
by the supplier.
Introduction to Data Quality Objectives - This 1-day course
teaches participants the basic elements of the Data Quality
Objectives Process. Participants learn the elements of this
process, how the process applies to a regulatory program at EPA,
and how to interpret the consequences of potential decision
errors. Then the participants work together as teams to apply
the process to some real-life examples.
