  • Perform full verification or validation of all parameters and data produced on the project
  • Organise and lead verification and validation documents reviews
  • Write the project solution verification and test reports
  • Ensure independence of verifiers from authors of the verified deliverables

  • Provide the required reports as defined by TIS Processes and/or specifically required by the Project, e.g. change request reporting, etc.
