• Call Processing Interval is calculated using data from the department Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD) data warehouse.

• MPDS Compliance is calculated by the Advanced Quality Assurance (AQUA) system used by Communications Center personnel to assess center performance.

• Performance targets are determined by ATCEMS management.
