Clearly explained.  Thank you for breaking it down in this way.  I will be sure that I separate the two standards in the future.

It does, but maybe it would clarify things if I put it this way. If you and I and Jeanette are standing under an umbrella, we aren't part of the umbrella. J  

 

The GPS is an umbrella that covers everything we do in our search for proof.  All the 73 standards in the Standards Manual are individual concerns that describe good work practices. As such, they could all fit under the umbrella, but they aren't the umbrella and they each have a separate identity.

 

Does this clarify things or just muddy the waters?
