Processes relating to managing a statistical production project/process in the GSBPM are currently included in Specify Needs (preparing business cases), Collect (setting up the collection), or as an overarching Project Management process. In managing established production projects, there is a need to manage deliverables (e.g. timetables), people (e.g. recruitment and training), and finances for the entire project, not just for the Collect related processes (where they feature most strongly). ABS staff prefer that these processes be pulled out of the individual phases, and put into an overarching 'Manage production project' phase. In addition, there would be initiation processes needed for new or enhanced production projects that could be added to this phase. This initiation of the production project could include 1.6 Prepare Business Case.
