PEAT is a tool that assists auditors in performing NPAP audits for sites.  Audits can be scheduled, performed and the results uploaded immediately to AQS.  All data is verified against AQS data and business rules to ensure the submitted data will be accepted by AQS.

PEAT has been designed to refresh all reference data and check and perform upgrades as they are released.  Applying the upgrades are very important since they will contain bug fixes and enhancements.

PEAT has been built using a universal model and will run on either the 32 bit version or the 64 bit version of Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10.
