OSAC Registry Implementation Survey

OSAC wants to better understand how the standards on the OSAC Registry are currently being used, the challenges around standards implementation, and what support is needed to improve it. The OSAC Registry Implementation Survey will be a tool we use to collect this information on an annual basis.

The first survey, which opened June 10, 2021 and closed August 31, 2021:

  • Provided a snapshot and assessment of 46 standards that have been posted on the OSAC Registry through March 2021. 
  • Targeted forensic science service providers from across the country (forensic science service providers were asked to submit one response per organization and location).

OSAC is currenly analyzing and aggregating the responses we have received. The results from the survey will be published in OSAC’s Fall Newsletter/Annual Report, going out at the end of October. This information will be shared for the benefit of the forensic science community and individual organization data and names will remain confidential.
