Process Guides

As of October 01, 2010 Practices, Templates, Checklists, and Processes are considered final and version frozen.
If you have questions or require additional information please contact the CDC Unified Process.

CDC projects are required to comply with various federal regulations in addition to PHIN and CDC policies and standards.  Information about these required processes is available from such sources as government websites, the CDC intranet, and CDC policy documents.  However, the information currently available about these requirements is often not presented from the perspective of the project team's activity.  CDC UP Process Guides were developed to provide that perspective.

CDC UP Process Guides help project teams comply with federal regulations along with PHIN and CDC policies and standards by: 1) presenting requirements in a concise, easy-to-understand, and consistent format that is available on the CDC Intranet; 2) setting the requirements in the context of their purpose; 3) providing step-by-step instructions for completing the activities required for compliance with each process; and, 4) showing the integration points between processes.

You can perform a quick project assessment To determine which of these compliance-related processes apply to your project.

The Process Guides listed below describe each compliance-related process as it applies to project teams, and outline the steps required for project teams to complete the process.  Italics denote new Process Guides that are in near-final draft form and are currently being tested by CDC project teams.
