The application for reaccreditation is similar to the initial accreditation. The first part of the process is the review of written policies and procedures. Most clients find the process easier the second time around, and the “Application for the Review of Policies and Procedures Report” generally has fewer items to address unless substantial changes have been made to standard operating procedures. Once the policies and procedures are revised and finalized, a site inspection is scheduled. After the organization adequately addressees any issues in the “Draft Site Inspection Report,” the report is reviewed by the Alion Council on Accreditation for a decision on reaccreditation.
