2.2 Step two: Select a methodology

Some commonly used methods of preparing a steward’sreport are:

  1. Using actual weights – “Specific Identification Method”
  2. Using the “Average Bill of Materials” (ABOM) method
  3. 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
  4. 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?
