- And who else in the organisation may need to be involved who isn't engaged at the moment (e.g. financial officers who may need to place preservation as a budget line within the organisation)
- also, the who are the community/stakeholders for which the preservation will be done. Spell out that the material should be considered as digital assets, and assets have value and that value is realised over time by means of preservation/curation. Value must accrue to some stakeholders and this is a process of describing and identifying the supply and demand issues. Who is supplying the assets (and providing the curation service) and who is demanding value from the assets - the users, consumers.
