Part G – Consultation
You conducted a consultation meeting with Caroline Materson the Corporate Manager at IAJ. IAJ does not currently have a sustainability policy that applies to its corporate office environment.
List the key discussion points of the new sustainability policy and specific roles and responsibilities along with any appropriate suggestions.
Part H – Monitoring and evaluation
An audit will take place and you had to plan for the audit and review process of the organisation’s document standards. The audit will seek to measure the extent to which the targets or performance indicators are being met. It should also identify any opportunities for improvement.
The audit process is to be conducted in collaboration and consultation of key stakeholders.
Start by developing your audit questions. These are the questions that you hope your review will answer. The questions should be relevant to the document performance indictors you set. The following are some examples of audit questions:
• Has the target been met?
• What prevented the targets from being met?
• Are employees aware of the requirements?
• Are procedures being followed?
• Have record keeping processes been followed?
Part I – Evaluation report
Prepare a report for management explaining the outcomes of the policy. Also include in what changes you will make to the policy as a result of your findings.
Part J – Recording systems
Explain how you will store and maintain records relating to the policy and who is responsible for this.
