6. Level of assessment of initiatives

The Guidelines include guidance on the assessment of proposed initiatives. The level of detail that users should apply in using the Guidelines in the assessment of initiatives will depend on the specific initiative being considered. The level of detail and effort in application will vary with the scale and complexity of the initiative.

Generally, large, complex initiatives will require a more detailed and comprehensive application of the Guidelines. For smaller, less complex initiatives, assessments of a less detailed and less comprehensive nature will often suffice. Professional judgement is required by the user in consultation with the relevant funding body and decision-maker.
