In order to meet the data quality of “transparency”, DNAs should conduct a public consultation on the matters related to proposed standardized baselines and allow monitoring of the quality of the compiled datasets and the generated outcomes.
The consultation report should include: (i) the objectives of public consultation; (ii) processes followed for public consultation; (iii) participants who attended the public consultation; (iv) a summary of the comments provided by stakeholders/experts; and (v) how comments were taken into account.
Two examples are presented here:
- Feasibility report
- Public consultation report
