Process

What do you need to think about in order to model costs as part of the business plan.  Factors such as internal vs. external
1.  What are you business requirements for digital preservation? (short-term, long-term, mandate, legal???)
2.  What is the scale of the programme you are proposing?  (Is it a project, phased, or full blown program???)
3.  Files types (assets)(what part of the collection or collections are you proposing to preserve)
4.  What is the current environment?  Do you have internal capacity? appetite?
5.  Type of system and process proposed
6.  Identify potential sources of funding (internal, external, core, project)
7.  Staffing  (Current capacity, can you move staff, how agile is the organization to move people around?)
8.  Training, Immediate and Continuous (skills and skills gap) (what is your current state?  Do you need to skill up quickly or keep people in-the-loop)
