Tim Watson, Head of the ITER Directorate for Buildings and Site Infrastructure and Takayuki Shirao, Head of ODG, led the assessors' visit to the ITER work site.
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.
