The Detailed Implementation Plan (DIP)

The Detailed Implementation Plan or DIP described the numerous steps necessary to complete the process of implementing the new system. The DIP was developed by building on:

  • The AJI-CWI Conceptual Plan
  • Findings from the AJI-CWI public feedback process, conducted in Autumn 2001
  • Ongoing planning work among the four partners

The DIP was a “rolling document” that provided the comprehensive framework for planning and implementing the new system. The understanding that the DIP was a “rolling document” acknowledged that it would need to be amended from time to time to reflect changing circumstances. Changes or amendments were made through consensus among all four partners.

The original DIP was a highly technical document consisting of over 200 pages. There were 20 sub-projects, or major tasks, in the DIP.
