The data management component of the OOI, including data quality control (QC), is co-located within the CI group. The data management team is responsible for performing preliminary qualitative assessments on data streams and responding to data questions submitted by external users.

OOI Data Quality Control procedures were designed with the goal of meeting IOOS Quality Assurance of Real Time Ocean Data (QARTOD) standards. In addition to daily human-in-the-loop QC tests, as data streams are collected, data products are run through up to six automated QC algorithms. QC reports are created on a biweekly or monthly basis.
