NCAMP 2016 questions and answers

Answers to questions that are asked about the National Collections Annual Maintenance Project.

Q. Will there be formal scripted compliance for NCAMP 2016.

A. It is unlikely that scripted compliance for NCAMP 2016 however all first production files will be processed through compliance first. Some NMDS submitters have raised the question of how to submit their first production file post NCAMP 16 implementation. It would be appreciated if submitters could place their first production files as notated below:

NMDS: Placed in usual folder with TEST in the file header

PRIMHD: Same location as PROD, but prefix file with 'COMP_' (eg COMP_PE20150605__.zip)

We appreciate this may be difficult for some organisations and they should contact Data Management Services in the normal manner to seek further direction.

Q. When can we expect guidance on Supplementary Social Records

A. A guideline document will be posted on this website prior to Christmas.
