22 22 Performance assessment in this process area is closely tied to the quality of metadata. A problematic workflow in metadata creation may hinder the discovery of potential issues and miss the opportunity to correct the process sooner to prevent the problem from becoming worse. Data for the quality of metadata descriptions should be regularly collected and procedures established to ensure the capturing of data that will later be used to assess both the process performance and quality of metadata.

24 -Data collected against the measurements for performance and quality will be used to verify the implementation of the policies, schemas, and operations. The verifying process can be formal as described in the original CMMI document ([[Paulk et al., 1993>>||anchor="Paulk"]]). The Australian National Data Services (ANDS) and the DMVitals project at the University of Virginia Library are examples of two initiatives in the data management community exploring strategies for supporting verification of implementation.

26 26 Verification also includes making sure that the metadata schema(s) developed conform to standards and internal verification by building documentation verification steps into one's daily practice and into the project workflow at key milestones ([[Long, 2009>>||anchor="Long"]]). One strategy Long uses for ensuring internal compliance with agreed upon documentation standards is designating a project team member to be responsible for checking verification.
