Policies and Procedures Review/Check-up

One key getting this information is to have it in the system, back to the 80-20 rule. The rule of thumb is that if the data is in the system you can report on.
What we need to be sure of is that what is in the system is good data. Hence the term GIGO. Wikipedia Article
