— RESPONSE CHECK —
The deadline to request a response check for the 2019 Assessment cycle is June 1, midnight PST.
The Response Check is carried out by GBCI and features a high-level review of your Assessment response followed by a discussion call. After the discussion call, you will receive a feedback report highlighting issues found.
The Response Check does not exclude you from the validation process. It is intended to ensure you have not overlooked important details in your submission and provides you the opportunity to ask for additional guidance and clarification on the GRESB Assessment indicators.
