GPC was hired by the Bangkok Metropolitan Electrical Authority (MEA) to assess their data conversion program and conversion contractor methods, and to make recommendations for streamlining this process. Much of this effort involved surfacing and clarifying data capture standards and expectations that had not been clearly specified in the original contract documents. Mr. Sorensen reviewed the MEA’s application requirements and associated these with specific data content, structure and horizontal accuracy requirements that were the source of some disagreement between the contractor and the MEA. These understandings were then used to refine the existing data capture methods and standards to a practical level that could be accomplished by the contractor, and which would ultimately serve the real needs of the MEA.
