    It's not that the Addressing and Geospacial Team demonstrate a lack of capability. Once alerted to the issue, and apparently working within data constraints of bygone technologies, the A&G Team in relative short order identified innacuracies at 20% of 195 SCFs. However, the business philosophy that forgoes a built-in periodic review policy shows little regard for the prospect of evolving or incorrectly calculated data, which suggests that ensuring long or short-term data integrity was never on the radar. This revelation, it seems to me, carries even more dire implications for performance expectations going forward than present discoveries of inaccuracy. I find it surprising that review policy implimentation is not a key recommendation of this alert.
