 Working Group for Standards Minimize


The Working Group for Standards was established by the SMAC to guide the development of standards for adoption or endorsement by the GICC.  Tasks include:

  • Reviewing adopted GICC standards to identify a standard that needs updating to reflect changes in technology, methods, or practices in North Carolina.
  • If multiple standards need attention, prioritizing the set based on potential benefits to those who apply the standard and to end users of the data.
  • For the priority standard, outlining key elements, steps and resources to support the research, analysis and revision.
  • Distinguishing between standards and best practices and, when necessary, developing a separate document for best practices.
  • Reporting findings and recommendations to the SMAC to initiate a plan for updating the standards.
