Title: A study of auditing methodologies for the Energy Information Administration data collection and processing system quality assessment program

Abstract

Since FY83 the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has assisted the Department of Energy's (DOE's) Energy Information Administration (EIA) Quality Assurance Division, Office of Statistical Standards (OSS), with assessments of the quality of EIA's automated data collection and processing systems. These assessments have had three objectives: to determine whether the survey systems collect, process, and publish accurate and reliable information; to ensure that the system documentation is current and adequate; and to evaluate the systems' compliance with applicable EIA standards. By the end of CY89 over 40 different EIA data survey systems will have been audited. This will complete the first round of EIA auditing. 17 refs.
