Microsoft Access application for automated data review Commercial equivalent of USACE’s Automated Data Review (ADR) software ADaPT Automated Data Processing Tool
FL ADaPT is a computer application that processes Electronic Data Deliverables (EDDs) based on field elements defined by the Florida DEP Laboratory Data Deliverable, (LDD) –(includes Lab data with QC and Error check) Program specific - Laboratory Receipt Deliverable –(includes Lab Receipt and some Field information) Program specific - Field EDD (FDD) –(includes field methods and Error check) FL ADaPT
ADaPT performs an error check for correctness, and completeness of the edds. ADaPT includes a technical consistency utility that performs the following cross and reversal checks: nutrients, total vs. dissolved, charge balance calculation, major ions vs. conductivity, TDS vs. conductivity, and analyzed TDS vs. calculated TDS. FL ADaPT
ADaPT performs a data review on the Laboratory Data Deliverable (LDD) that measures the integrity of sample results against associated laboratory quality control, holding times, and method detection limits.
FL ADaPT ALLOWS FOR PROFESSIONAL JUDGEMENT The Automated Data Review evaluates the FL ADaPT LDD and applies Validator’s data review qualifiers to sample results based on laboratory quality control results reported in LDD and project specific data review criteria specified in a project library, (Electronic QAPP).

QA/Validation Data Review
Implementation Challenges Stakeholders buy-in –Regulators, Laboratories, Consultants. Laboratories –Most of the work, LIMS conformance/translations, learning curve, misconceptions, window looking into lab’s world. Consultants –Misconceptions, learning curve, eye opener. Regulators –We have always done this way, eye opener.
Implemented in stages, giving labs time to comply. Successful implementation helped labs optimize and correct procedures. Training and technical support offered to labs and Data Users. Consultants, regulators become familiar with method requirements, regulations. Consistent naming conventions. Consistent edd submittals. Validated (Level II) data in databases. Implementation Successes

Present ADaPT Users Receiving the Data Validating the Data Delivering the Data Is it easier? YES!!!!!!! Most of the manual Level II Data Validation is done by ADaPT Naming Conventions, Methods, Units, Analytes, Project Requirements, Holding Times, Qualifiers, Method QC Requirements, MDLs/PQLs, Certified Lab ID, Dilutions, Sampling Dates, Lab Received Dates, Batch IDs, Consistency, Field methods, Comparison Reports, etc.
Summary The laboratory has met the requirements of the project. Level II QC is reported electronically with sample results. Awareness of QC requirements. Technical/balance review (Total vs. Dissolved, etc.) Evaluates sample results based on linked QC results reported in the EDD. Able to control naming conventions (analytes etc.) and keep consistent in data base. Able to check if all the methods and analytes were reported for the project. Applies validator’s qualifiers. Reduces data review costs. Able to pdf. or ADaPT generated reports Regulatory Comparison reports. Transfers final reviewed data to database. Paperless.
