The Center also operates the agency's technical equipment strategic plan to better monitor the agency's equipment needs and ensure they are met.
- Arranges Compliance Officers' Forum on Equipment Evaluation. The center arranges two meetings in conjunction with professional society meetings to give compliance officers an opportunity to meet with center staff and discuss equipment needs and related issues.
