Mock Surveys
Mock SurveyMock surveys can be an effective  way to become familiar with the survey process and prepare for an actual survey.   They are useful  when preparing for initial accreditation, when a new program is added under a currently accredited organization, or in preparation for a re-survey.  
Mock surveys are individualized for each organization and include:  review of policies, procedures, and practices; review of documents and forms; records review; tour of the main office and program sites; and interviews with governance, leadership, funders, staff, and clients.
We offer two levels of mock surveys.  Click here  for more information.
