I have received the letter from PSINet the ITA (Independent Testing Authority). This letter states that GEMS 1-11-14 has successfully met the required acceptance criteria of the Federal Election Commission Standards. PSINet has recommended to the NASED committee that GEMS be certified.
I have this letter on file here in the McKinney office.
A special thanks goes out to Nel Finberg taking on the task of completing the documentation and working with PSINet during the testing process. Also a heartfelt thank you to everyone who played a role in seeing this to its completion.
We must not rest on our laurels and now begin the task of getting GEMS 1-17 through the certification process.
Thanks for all of the hard work.
