DATA QUALITY OBJECTIVES: These Data Quality Objectives (DQO) were new with Change 5. This supplement complements the SPIM with additional data quality information for CERCLIS users and does not supersede the SPIM. SPIM language will prevail if there are inconsistencies. Currently DQO data entry timeliness is under review.
