Common Assessment Framework (CAF)

As the word implies, this is about reaching agreement and usually follows an initial self-assessment when individual assessors get together to compare and discuss their individual assessments and individual scores. The process usually ends with individual assessors reaching an agreement, resulting in a combined overall score and assessment for the organisation.
