- Have any potential workforce planning issues such as employee development and training, staffing levels, filling skill gaps with contractors, and/or other activities associated with this project/investment been planned for?
- For audit tracking, state the level of the granularity needed; do you just need to know that someone logged in and out, or do you need to know what screens or records or fields were accessed?
- What is the impact on the training and level of effort needed to identify and define roles, the organizational impact of implementing roles, and the responsibility for role maintenance?
- Are there any circumstances/cases for which dissolution and/or disintegration testing may no longer be needed/provide any additional values to product Quality Assurance at release?
- Do you have the ability to track activities/projects for a given relationship manager and associate these to the appropriate building or contract data in the other areas of the application?
- Do we regularly explore open-source and paid proprietary solutions for speech recognition to translate call data into text for quality assurance and fraud analytics?
- Is the list of clearly identified individuals and assigned responsibilities for maintaining the quality assurance program and for performing the quality control tests current?
