Certificate of Consultation Readiness

A review of all pre-consultation activities and processes that provides you with assurance you have met tCI’s standards to proceed to consultation.

When you need something more comprehensive than Advice and Guidance, but do not want to go to the extent of full Quality Assurance, consider having an Institute expert review what you are doing and confirm that your preparations for consultation are in line with tCI’s expectations.

The service is designed to support you at the very early stages and is structured to get you ready to consult. The scope of a consultation readiness review covers all pre-consultative activities as well as preparation and planning and materials development.

Typically, Institute clients use our review services in the following ways:-

  • To examine a proposal or plan for flaws that could lead to complications or challenges.
  • To provide feedback on the quality of a consultation document or impact assessment
  • To add value to an engagement or consultation plan

The requirements are structured into four key phases of activity:

  1. Pre-consultation
  2. Consultation scoping and governance
  3. Project planning
  4. Documentation

Unlike an Advice and Guidance contract, where the work undertaken can be selective as directed by the client, a Certificate of Consultation Readiness requires the Institute to review all pre-consultation documents and processes to form an overall assessment of the work undertaken and prepared. In awarding a Certificate of Consultation Readiness, tCI must be assured that the consultor has met the required standards at each stage.

“The confidence of having the backing of tCI and the Certificate has been so helpful for us to give feedback to scrutiny from councillors and our own committees about the process.”
