repair station must complete at least one “R” item for each element annually.
During the next 12 months, the certificate management members will complete the surveillance program as determined by the RSAT. It should be noted that the baseline surveillance program consists of a 3650/5650 “Required” (R) item generated for each repair station. This in-turn will generate 14 additional “Required” (R) items as listed in section 1.1.1 and the 3650/5650 can’t be closed until all these elements are completed and closed.
The RSAT is intended to be developed in two phases: Phase 1, available for fielding at the beginning of FY06; and Phase 2, available for fielding at the beginning of FY07. The Phase 1 tool will be a simplified paper version of the tool, which will allow for repair station assessment and prioritization among repair stations at the local level. The Phase 2 tool will be more comprehensive and will be automated during FY06 and will be ready for fielding in FY07. These tools will allow for data sharing at a regional and national level.
