1. FSLM Verification VRQ and VRE
As data is shared across systems (Higg, Gateway, FFC, Sedex, ILO/BW), it becomes critical to enforce quality of data. So, SLCP and the Gateway will start checking data. This data quality check will be reflected as a new status in the FSLM workflow: VRQ and VRE.
New status explanation:
VRQ: Verification Quality Check (to automatically check quality of data)
VRE: Verification being Edited (for the verifier to edit)
- VRP -> VRQ
- When the verifier completes and submits the verification, the verification status will be changed from VRP to VRQ.
2. VRQ -> VRE
- If assessment fails the SLCP quality checks, the status will automatically go into VRE (set by Gateway) and an automated email will be sent to the verifier by the Gateway on behalf of VOO identifying the issue(s) found and asking verifier to check their work again and make edits as necessary. Verifier must reply with whether edits were made or not to the VOO.
- VRE is set by Gateway automatically if there are data quality issues in VRQ.
- The assessment status will be changed to VRC automatically 5 days after VRQ to VRE.
Verified Data and Downloadable Report Accessibility in VRE status
- Facility: Full visibility to FSLM self-assessment data on platform. No verification data.
- Full visibility to data on the platform. Full editing access on platform
- Data Collection Tool workbook is for offline verification. Facility data is locked, Verification Data is editable
- Verifier is able to go from online to offline or offline to online
- No access
3. VRQ -> VRC -> VRE – > VRC
- If the assessment passes the VOO quality checks, the status will automatically go into VRC (set by Gateway) . The facility can require the change when the assessment status is VRC.
- The facility will go to the FSLM dashboard and “Available Action” section to click the “Request Edit” button. Once done, the assessment status will be changed to VRE.
- Under “VRE” status, the verifier can edit the verification assessment.
- After the assessment is completed editing, the verifier will submit the verification. The assessment status will be changed from VRE to VRC.
- Under “VRC” status, the verifier can’t edit the verification data.
4. VRC -> VRD -> VRE -> VRC
- The facility can request dispute under “VRC” status. They will click the “Dispute Verification” button under the “Available Actions” section in the FSLM dashboard. Then their assessment status will be changed from VRC to VRD. The VOO will move from VRD to VRE from the Gateway if the dispute is accepted. Then the assessment will be shown as VRE status. The verifier can edit the verification data and submit it.
- After the verifier submits the verification data, the assessment status will be changed to VRC.
5. VRC -> VRF or VRQ -> VRE -> VRC -> VRF or VRE -> VRC ->VRF
- The facility can review and finalize the verification data by clicking the “Finalize Verified Assessment” button on the FSLM dashboard. Then the assessment status will be changed to VRF from VRC.
- Once the VRQ period is complete, the facility and the verifier have 14 full calendar days to work on any changes before the assessment automatically goes to VRF.
- There can be as many VRE to VRC changes as required in this time period. On the 15th calendar day, the assessment status will go to VRC and then go to VRF. So the assessment status can be changed VRQ -> VRE -> VRC -> VRF or VRE -> VRC -> VRF.
- To actively remind the verifier and the facility through the AH platform about the running clock, the FEM dashboard has a countdown clock. The verifier and facility respectively can see how much time they have until the assessment will be changed to VRF.
- If the assessment status goes to VRD, the countdown clock is cancelled (disappears from the FSLM dashboard).
