Local Corrective Action Plans: Collection and Use of Valid and Reliable Data For Determining Factors Contributing To Noncompliance (2008)
This tool, developed by NECTAC, WRRC, and DAC, is designed to assist local programs/districts in identifying factors contributing to noncompliance for SPP/APR Indicators C1, C7, C8, B11, B12 and B15. By determining contributing factors appropriate strategies to ensure timely correction of noncompliance can be developed in local Corrective Action Plans. Indicator C8 is covered on pages 8-16. Indicator B12 is covered on pages 20-22. Indicator B11 is covered on pages 23-25.
