Test File Validation and PAO Assignment
Note: a BTE license agreement should be executed before completing this step
Upon test file validation, you will be assigned a performance assessment organization (PAO) with whom you will need to sign a data use agreement
You should have had some communications with HCI3 regarding assignment to a performance assessment organization (PAO) at this point. If you have not, and you have executed a BTE limited license agreement, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
You PAO will provide information on how to deliver your test file to them and will then review your test file for completeness and adherence to BTE's data file formats and measure specifications. Once reviewed, they will provide you with load summaries that either accept or reject the test data submissions and, if rejected, will identify records with incomplete or invalid data for you to correct and resubmit.
