Learning Assessment 2: What are all of the risks that you can have, and if those risks materialize, the plan really needs to identify how will we respond to these situations?

Q: Who is best to write test plan? Contractors? Designers?
: Well, generally speaking, you want someone who has some testing experience, they're going to be the most knowledgeable of what to look out for, so that could be a-- someone who is like a developer, although I think it's generally very important to also have an independent test agency.

Q: Are there certified testing labs available for some ITS standards?
Unfortunately no. Generally speaking, the way the industry handles this is, there are a variety of firms, including my own, that offer testing, third party independent testing, and they will issue letters of certification saying that they performed a certain set of test procedures.
