SQFI has made the suggestion in the past that the company has at minimum 2-3 months worth of implementation/records/logs, etc. We make the recommendation to our clients that once system development is done that implementation phase be 3-4 months at min. for shake out and then the desk audit is done and following that the cert audit. Your time-line appears to be very aggressive and really does appear to provide enough time for implementation/record/log, etc generation -- i.e. enough stuff for the auditor to review. Also depending on what FSCs you have you'll need to check the availability of auditors that are certified in the same FSCs and are available. This is a busy year for SQF consulting and auditing, schedules are filling out fast.
Hope that helps.
