Site visitors have reported that having materials in advance has increased their efficiency during the visit. The CAA hopes this practice will facilitate the site visit preparation and process for programs and the site visit team.
For virtual site visits, the CAA recommends that most documents be available to the team 30 days before the scheduled visit, including those listed to be available at the time of the site visit.
