Independent Third-Party Employment DatA Verification FAQ
As a resource for accredited member institutions, ACCSC has published a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) advisory which provides additional guidance on the Independent Third-Party Employment Data Verification requirements. The FAQ provides answers to frequently asked questions such as:
- Does my school have to have an independent third-party verification of employment data every year?
- Which Annual Report will my school need to have verified by the independent third-party as part of my application for accreditation and submission of my Self Evaluation Report?
- What does my school need to have ready for the on-site evaluation team?
The Independent Third-Party Employment Verification FAQ is available for download by clicking here.
The Independent Third-Party Employment Data Verification policy went into effect for all schools that attend an initial or renewal workshop beginning in January 1, 2014. As part of this requirement, a school must ensure that the independent third-party employment verification auditor it chooses meets the following tests to be considered an “Independent” Third-Party.
- Please note that the auditor will not go through any type of approval process with ACCSC prior to the project; rather, the on-site evaluation team will review the independence and methodology of the auditor.
