Stage 2: Innovation and Assessment Requirements
Step 2.1.5 - Cost of implementation
When a clear set of innovation requirements have been developed, cost estimates for its implementation will be prepared and reviewed. As part of this estimation process the potential cost of a broader roll out programme of the innovation across the national HA network should be prepared. Consideration may be given, for example, to the potential savings that may accrue through the wider implementation or regional variations.
The development of the overall pilot requirements specification will generally follow a process from definition, through review and revision until there is agreement between the key stakeholders. Part of the review process will be the consideration of the estimated costs of the design specification. The determination of costs should be a continual consideration in the development of the pilot requirements and must include all aspects of the innovation including for example traffic management, temporary site works etc.
