If you have been on multiple consultation sites and everybody seems to offer something different, here are a few things to consider prior to committing your resources to an accreditation consultant:

  Updated Resources

There should be evidence the provider is consistently updating their resources, based on ongoing direct experience with organizations.


  Comprehensive Resources

The resources consultants offer should be comprehensive, in terms of addressing specific CARF processes and individual stems of standards.


  Products, Experience, and Reputation

Their products, experience, and reputation should be the central focus of consideration, not promises that if you buy their stuff you will get a three-year accreditation.
