    • What positive steps have been taken? What are the remaining gaps?
    • Why is this an important area? Is it important nationally, regionally, or locally? 
    • Whose responsibility is it to implement the recommended changes and improvements? Whose responsibility is it to implement your recommendations?
    • What sources for funding are available?
