Abstract
The ALMA aperture synthesis radio telescope is under construction in northern Chile. This paper presents the organization and process of ALMA System Verification. The purpose of System Verification is to measure the performance of the integrated instrument with respect to the ALMA System Technical Requirements. The System Technical Requirements flow down from the Science Requirements of the telescope and are intended to guide the design of the array and set the standards for technical performance. The process of System Verification will help determine how well the ALMA telescope meets its science goals. Some verification results are discussed.
