Once a Change
Proposal has been accepted the Proposal moves to Impact Assessment.
Impact Assessments are initiated after a solution, or solution
options have been defined. An Impact Assessment gives parties an
opportunity to identify, validate and quantify the impacts and/or
benefits a solution would have on their business/market role.
Impact Assessments are targeted at impacted Service Providers, REC
Parties or Non-REC Parties but are extended to any interested
stakeholders. This may include other industry service providers,
delivery bodies, consumer bodies or innovators.
Impact Assessments include questions relevant to the targeted
Service Provider or impacted/interested Stakeholder, focussing on the
costs and benefits a solution would bring and the impacts that would
be seen from different implementation approaches.
Manager reviews the Impact Assessment responses and uses them to
inform the business case and/or assessment against the REC objectives
in the Preliminary and Final Assessment.
You can find more information on Impact Assessments in the REC Change Process user guide.
