Validate decision

This is an important action under the Implementation step to ensure transparency and allow the participating stakeholders and citizens to see how their information and opinions have been taken on board in the decision-making and how the decision has been implemented.

The actions here are especially important in highly contentious issues or where there has been a lot of cynicism.

Key Actions 

  • View the implementation plan or policy or law being proposed to demonstrate that the outcome of the Systems Approach Framework (SAF) process is what is actually being implemented.
  • If physical work needs to be undertaken, ensure that:
    • it is in accordance with agreed outcomes.
    • or if implementation cannot be done according to outcomes due to unforseen circumstances (eg. archeological discovery during excavations), the SAF core group can engage the stakeholders in identifying alternative solutions.
