Audit & Certification (TRAC) Criteria and Checklist. My primary responsibility is to review Section C, which focuses on technology. Having looked through the TRAC document several times now, my sense is that ICPSR has a pretty good story to tell, and the main task is to take the time to tell the story. I thought it might be interesting to begin a series of blog posts, one per item from Section C in the TRAC checklist.
I have three goals for the posts:
- Tell ICPSR's story for each item so that we have transparent evidence and documentation in each area
- Share ICPSR's evidence and documentation for others who are working through the TRAC document, or who are thinking about starting; I think it's often easier to work with something that someone has already begun v. starting from scratch
- Solicit input from others who have completed TRAC certification: What have we missed?
And if you're working through TRAC yourself, I'd love to hear any advice you have (either as Comments here or via email).
