The FACT-CIBMTR Data Audit Committee reviews implementation, adequacy, and effectiveness of corrective action plans with the goal of providing education and assistance to programs throughout the accreditation cycle to achieve quality improvement in data management. At the time of accreditation renewal, the FACT Accreditation Committee will assess the completeness and accuracy of a program’s data management based on the clinical inspector’s report and the report of the FACT-CIBMTR Data Audit Committee.
