Regulatory Compliance Decision Making Using the Key Indicator Methodology

In this blog I have a new Technical Research Paper on how best to make regulatory compliance decisions.  “The purpose of the paper is to provide guidance to regulatory administrators in decision making regarding the Key Indicator Methodology. A 2 x 2 Matrix will be used to demonstrate the key decisions that need to be made with various caveats and examples. Key Indicator Systems for Licensing have been used in states for many years now; this paper hopefully will provide a framework for the difficult decision making when it comes to moving from an abbreviated monitoring inspection to a full comprehensive monitoring inspection.”

This paper builds upon previous Technical Research Papers and other publications in which I have described the technical details of the key indicator methodology.  This paper hopefully provides a more straightforward presentation without the algorithms and statistical formulas.
