Data Provider Pilot Program
The Service Level & Communications Working Group continues work on the Data Provider Evaluation Pilot Program.  The Pilot Program is designed to provide more feedback to more Data Providers.  This feedback reflects how well a Data Provider utilizes the suggested recommendations contained in the Working Group’s Best Practices document. A dozen Data Providers have volunteered to receive confidential feedback from the Working Group members.  FISD members that are at the receiving end of data are strongly encouraged to be a part of this Working Group and provide feedback to these Data Providers who are eager to receive it.  Let’s not waste this opportunity to enhance communication and improve rollouts of new products and policies. Interested FISD members should contact Nick Merritt.
