This step typically occurs after a resubmission is not accepted Information is reported to specified end users (including DEWHA) through strategic Enhanced Delivery program Agreement on delivery needs Lack of agreement on delivery needs Solution from Committees adopted Information is delivered for public benefit through appropriate media and communication strategies Disconnect from contractual obligations is reported to DEWHA, and dispute resolution processes are established with the project team and contracted institution If agreement cannot be reached Reports are approved within the database tracking system, triggering release of finances against the delivery item to the contracted institution Who defines the product- by what process?
