Some commonly used methods of preparing a steward’sreport are:
- Using actual weights – “Specific Identification Method”
- Using the “Average Bill of Materials” method or ABOM
- Using CSSA calculators – If you are considering using one of our industry-developed calculators, please contact National Steward Services as the calculators are not applicable for all organizations
- Some stewards use their own in-house or commercial software and/or engage third parties to assist in their report preparation.
The obligation for accuracy of reporting always rests with the obligated steward
Low Volume reporting options are available for some programs – please refer to Part One of the Guidebook, Section 1.11: What is a Small Business Policy?
