As the Chesapeake Bay Program Mainstem Monitoring Program reached its fifth
anniversary, EPA initiated a systematic review of the program design and implementation.
In the process of this review, numerous questions were raised which required investigation.
To insure that all of these issues received appropriate attention and to provide thorough
documentation of this process for future users of this important database, a tracking system
was designed which is known as the Data Analysis Issues Tracking System (DAITS).

DAITS is a central collection point for the registry of all issues which are raised by
those involved in the management, operation and review of the Chesapeake Bay Program
(CBP) monitoring programs. The DAITS will encompass issues relating to any programs
contributing data to the CBP data base.
