Dear ASECTT Member:
ASECTT has joined ATA and others in calling for Administrator Ferro to voluntarily remove publication of SMS Methodology from the web. See Tom Sanderson's letter.
The Inspector General report on SMS Methodology was issued on March 7, 2014. See Fleet Owner Article "DOT IG faults CSA data quality, interventions" by Avery Vice, and the CCJ Article "DOT Inspector General audit points out more shortcomings in CSA" by Kevin Jones. The IG did not consider the effectiveness of the SMS Methodology, but noted that only 10 states had fully implemented SMS interventions and that needed software would not be available until May of 2015. See document on the IG Report.
