Transparent Assessment Framework

The Transparent Assessment Framework (TAF) is a framework to organize data, methods, and results used in ICES assessments, so they are easy to reference and re-run.

​The transparent assessment framework (TAF) is an online archive of final assessment for each year, for all stock categories. All data input and outputs are linked to existing or upcoming ICES data services.


Each assessment is organized in folders:

data input → model → output

These folders contain R scripts and other files that perform the following tasks:

data input
read fine-resolution data, produce aggregated input data in model-specific format

run model with input data, produce output data in model-specific format


read output data in model-specific format, produce output in standard CSV format
