The Specify Needs phase doesn't explicitly refer to proposing statistica= l solution options to addressing client needs, it just separately mentions = various aspects of these solutions, probably because a survey solution is a= ssumed. Some of the sub-processes also don't seem big enough to warrant bei= ng explicit at this level (e.g. identify concepts). In the new ABS Bu= siness Architecture we have combined and re-focussed 1.1 - 1.5 into two sub= -processes - 'Understand and confirm statistical needs' and 'Scope st= atistical solution' (scoping and preparing a high level solution design is = effectively what a business area does to get approval to proceed with the p= roject, and before the detailed design, build/assembly and implementation p= rocesses commence in earnest). To be in scope of the GSBPM any solutions pr= epared would need to result in the creation of data outputs.
Statistics New Zealand response to GSBPM v4.0
Responsiveness to indigenous peoples
Statistics New Zealand has moved a long way towards making the organisat= ion=E2=80=99s commitment to responding to the information needs of the M=C4= =81ori people more visible in our documentation and in our work generally. = In light of this, we have been considering whether it is worthwhile adding = an explicit sub-process within the Specify Needs process to better highligh= t this need. Currently, activities associated with identifying and respondi= ng to the information needs of M=C4=81ori would sit under each of the sub-p= rocesses within Specify Needs, but are nowhere referenced explicitly.
Meeting legislative requirements
Similarly, there may be legislative requirements that form part of the a= ssessment of information needs. Examples relevant to Statistics New Zealand= include preparing and submitting a Privacy Impact Assessment to New Zealan= d=E2=80=99s Privacy Commissioner when information about individuals is invo= lved, and obtaining Ministerial approval for new statistical surveys commis= sioned by government departments (including Statistics New Zealand). At pre= sent, activities associated with meeting legislative requirements are impli= cit in one or more of the sub-processes within the Specify Needs process. I= t may be useful to have legislative requirements explicitly referenced as a= sub-process in the Specify Needs process.
