As part of the ITER Agreement, the ITER Organization must undergo a Management Assessment at least every two years.

KR Sriram was appointed by the ITER Council as 2011 ITER Management Assessor to lead a team of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.

The team of five persons led by Mr Sriram is currently carrying out a two-week visit to Cadarache, which will be followed by a visit to all seven ITER Domestic Agencies and a return visit to the ITER Organization for two weeks beginning 22 August.

The Management Assessors will report their findings and recommendations to the ninth ITER Council in November 2011.
