Step 10 Respond and review
The PIA process does not end after you have written (and published) your PIA report. It is important that actions are taken to respond to the recommendations made in your report, and to continue to review and update your PIA.
Responding to recommendations
Responding to recommendations in a PIA is one of the most important stages of the process. The project manager and your organisation should document:
- Which recommendations they intend to implement (or have already implemented)
- The recommendations they do not intend to implement, and the rationale for this decision
Your organisation’s response should be published together with your PIA report, where possible. If your PIA report is not published, your organisation should consider providing it to significant stakeholders to assist in effective implementation of recommendations.
You may wish to prepare a plan for implementing the recommendations, indicating a specific timeframe and identifying who is responsible for the implementation.
