A brief description of the institution’s assurance process:

Although Carlberg's and Tornatore's names show up as responsible parties in the report, the Data Manager (Stephen Ellis) and the interns supervised by him are the curators of the content for the FY2019/2020 STARS report.

BU Sustainability starts with an internal review within the department, then Institutional Research (IR), finally Operations.
