Staged Electronic Data Deliverable
The Staged Electronic Data Deliverable (SEDD) is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-backed "uniform format for electronic delivery of analytical data for environmental programs that can significantly improve data quality while reducing costs to review data." The format is used primarily for EPA Response Action Contractor (RAC) contracts, EPA Superfund Technical Assessment and Response Team (START) contracts, and by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The EPA offers an SEDD Generator Tool to those and other contracting laboratories so they may transmit analytical data to the EPA in an Extensible Markup Language (XML)-compliant format.
