When will I receive the audit results?
An audit report containing results will be sent to the Medical Director and primary audit contact approximately six to eight weeks after the audit.
What will happen if I fail the audit?
All centers that fail an audit with a critical field error rate >3% will be required to complete a corrective action plan. Centers that have a significantly high error rate or consistently fail to meet data quality standards will have audit consequences applied. For more information regarding audit consequences, please see the Audit Consequences page.
When will my forms be unlocked?
The forms that were audited will remain locked in the FormsNet database after the audit. Any changes made as a result of the audit will be entered into the FormsNet database by the auditors. A summary of the changes made in the FormsNet database will be sent shortly after the audit report.
Forms that were not audited due to time constraints will be unlocked following the audit.
Can we make/request changes to the audited (locked) forms?
If, following the audit, you identify changes that need to be made to locked forms, please submit error correction forms (ECFs) to your CRC with the changes. Depending on the nature of the requested change, you may be contacted to provide source documentation supporting the change.
What if I need more time to complete a CAP?
CAP extensions are given on a case-by-case basis. If you need an extension, contact your auditor to arrange a CAP due date extension.
