The Audit Program has developed a formal post-audit process for inquiries regarding data changes made during the audit. Following the audit, in addition to the final CIBMTR Audit Report, the center is sent a data change summary to summarize all changes made to the FormsNet3 database as a result of the audit. If a center has questions or concerns regarding a specific audited data field change, the review process is initiated.
If a center requests changes to data fields reviewed and changed as part of the audit, the center submits their questions and concerns along with any applicable source documentation regarding the data changes. This information is then reviewed by the audit team. If the changes reviewed result in data field changes and a change to the originally calculated error rates, a summary letter describing the data changes and new error rates are sent to the center along with a detailed explanation about why the change was made. In the case where a center’s pass/fail status is changed based on the data review, an amended audit report is also produced and sent to the center.
