If your Company is being audited, PES will assist you. However, you MUST provide us with advance notice, just as you are given by auditor.
Stats are usually required by an auditing company and can be either Regulated or Non-Regulated. PES will gather your Company's statistical data from your Company's testing information, enter in auditor's "Statistical Data Form" and provide to auditors. Usually this is an on-going requirement of auditors and can be required either quarterly or bi-annually.
PES will provide this service to consortium members. However, statistical data requires much more information than MIS Reports. Much more time and effort goes into figuring and developing stats. For these reasons, PES will only report Statistical Data (stats) to Auditors and not to consortium members.
