Verification is a critical element in any scientific assessment. While many scientists would opt to carry out their own verification analyses, there could be good reasons to engage a third party for this:
- Verification requires significant resources that could be allocated to other activities;
- While experts in their disciplines, scientists do not necessarily have to be experts in forecast verification;
- Scientists may benefit from a completely honest assessment of their forecasts by a third party.
