Examples; 10 of the 976 standard requirements:

  1. In a rapidly changing business climate, you see a perceptible sense of urgency for CIOs to tackle the perennial topic of how to reduce IT run costs while supporting growth: How to do more with less?

  2. Does your organization own a license to this third party software now, and is it possible to utilize your organizations current data reduction and analysis capabilities without any additional costs?

  3. Does the investment support work processes that have been simplified or otherwise redesigned to reduce costs, improve effectiveness, and make maximum use of commercial, off-the-shelf technology?

  4. What mechanisms, reductions in cost of stakeholder participation, or other support does your RTO/ISO provide to the small consumer community to facilitate participation in RTO/ISO governance?

  5. Does the technology offer either opportunities for substantial improvement in performance or the potential to provide at least the same quality of performance at a substantially reduced cost?

  6. How do you use lean, agile, or just-in-time methodologies or practices like vendor-managed inventory or supplier-managed inventory to reduce costs without impeding your responsiveness?

  7. Does even the simplest patch management process require intensive testing to ensure exceptions are addressed, adding more time and overhead to achieve your organization outcome?

  8. How are you supposed to integrate multiple heterogeneous computing environments, reduce power costs and still meet increasing demands to deploy mission-critical applications?

  9. Does the program or project contribute to the alignment of aid flows with national priorities and strategies and the reduction of transaction costs for the program country?

  10. Where will engagement with stakeholders increase the overall value of this resource to your organization (including increases in value driven by risk and cost reductions)?
