The EPA Contract Laboratory Program (CLP) uses the Electronic Data Evaluation and Exchange Software (EXES) tool for automated data review and evaluation. EXES can be used to automatically identify potential data quality and usability issues, thus reducing the time necessary for manual data validation. A webinar will be held on May 24 to provide an overview of data validation, and outline ways that project managers, data validators, or end data users can incorporate EXES into their monitoring projects to increase efficiency and lower costs. http://clu-in.org/live/
