In 2011 and in 2012, Task Forces were created to address various aspects of the Ag Industry Identification System (AGIIS). The groups were charged with proposing recommendations to improve AGIIS for use today and into the future by all the Ag Industry segments. As each group’s recommendations are approved by the DOC, we create and execute an implementation plan. Information about the implementation of the recommended improvements can be found here.
The Task Forces created include:
AGIIS Duplicates Task Force (ADTF) focused on establishing AGIIS as the industry benchmark for accurate and trusted information by defining a solution which eliminates existing duplicate entities and prevents the creation of new duplicate entities in AGIIS. This group completed their work in November 2011 and implementation of their recommendations is in process.
Entity Rules Task Force whose objective was to review the current rules applying to entities and propose revised entity rules to address the needs of all the Councils today and into the future. This group completed their work in November 2011 and development of the implementation plan was completed in early 2012. Implementation has not yet started.
Products Task Force focused on reviewing the current rules, process and application of the product aspects of AGIIS and creating a recommendation on a path forward to reduce barriers to use for all Councils. This group completed their work in November 2011 and development of the implementation plan was completed in early 2012. Implementation of the initial recommendations started in April 2012.
Dun & Bradstreet Transition Task Force is focused on developing a plan and process recommendation for an orderly transition away from the use of Dun & Bradstreet numbers and for a verification process to meet current and future needs. This group is still active.
This list will be updated as documents become available.
