Process Assessment

CDC UP Process Guides were developed to help project teams comply with Federal regulations along with PHIN and CDC policies and standards. The specific processes a CDC project team must complete for compliance vary from project to project based a number of characteristics. The table below provides a series of questions to help the project team assess which processes they are required to complete for compliance. Click here for a complete list of CDC UP Process Guides.

Note:  CDC UP Process Guides focus on compliance-related processes applicable to IT projects. If your project does not involve the development or use of an IT system, you may not be required to complete any of the processes returned by this survey.
