So it doesn't look like you're just coming up with cases that Sharepoint doesn't do, you might consider something like the TRAC checklist: 2007 version, from CRL: http://www.crl.edu/sites/default/files/attachments/pages/trac_0.pdf 2011 update from CCSDS: http://public.ccsds.org/publications/archive/652x0m1.pdf The 2011 update should mirror what's in ISO 16363. Most of the other certifications that I've seen look more at the organization, and don't have specific portions for technology. -Joe ps. A quick search for 'SharePoint' and 'OAIS' led me to : http://www.eprints.org/events/or2011/hargood.pdf ... which as best I can tell is the abstract for a poster at OR2011.
