The Process:



 

Initial Consultation:

After initial discussions of objectives and stakeholders, a feasibility report is commissioned.  An agreement on the nature of initial reporting, and that we are working with realistic objectives, gets the process started. 

A detailed overview of secondary data sources are delivered as an initial feasibility report to the interested stakeholders. 

This feasibility report depending upon the nature and objectives of the consultancy will provide probabilities success and time projections.

The objective of this feasibility report is to provide all important and involved stakeholders with sufficient information to generate committee or interest group presentations. 

The feasibility report is comprised of presentation support tools such as slide shows, including tables and other visual graphics.

The process is started with a letter to INdRAconsultancy@indra-rain.com, which outlines your challenges.  You can also utilize our on-line questionnaire.



Initial Studies:

A crew of INdRA environmental engineers is dispatched to engage in both group presentations and one-on-one meetings with stakeholders to answer initial questions.

Agreements are reached as to the initial studies which will generate primary data, such as thermal or hydrology mapping. 

Source data providers are reviewed and accepted by key stakeholders.  Schedules and timetables are approved and commissions granted to move the primary data gathering processes forward.

Primary data is collected and then combined and contrasted with secondary data, and initial conclusions are drawn specific to the program's overall objectives.

Initial reports are generated and subjected to stakeholder approval as to content and form, prior to the undertaking of longitudinal studies.   Longitudinal studies are then commissioned and contracted with the approved suppliers.

Longitudinal Studies:

Data gathering equipment, and observation schedules are put in place.  Where possible local personnel is recruited to gather and report data at accepted intervals.

A retrospective study forms the basis of a longitudinal observational study, to determine the most dynamic areas of study.   For example, the topographical layout of the region will largely determine both thermal and kinetic flow portals.  Data collection points are established and data resolution rates are determined.  

Data is monitored during the collection period and adjustments are made to the program in sympathy with the effectiveness of collection and project goals.

Each chosen study, (hydrological, thermal, kinetics, etc.) will generate a full report that will provide both current and future utility for policy making.

Reporting:

The primary objective of all delivered reports will be to support the legislative process.  Explanations of terms and examination of methods, and the weaknesses and strengths of the chosen methods will be key elements of reports delivered. 

Reports will be fully bound as long term reference materials.  Each report will contain a comprehensive analysis of primary, secondary and tertiary data.

The reporting will include sections for academic, policymaker and community reporting.  This approach will add value to all stakeholders, and assist in public reporting.

Each major contributor to the report will be asked to present a significant set of results, analysis of methods, and recommendations with justification.

A complete bibliography, along with other features such as table of contents and index will be featured as well.

Legislative Guidelines:



These consultancies is designed to work directly with local, regional and national legislators through various agencies and commissions.

The primary deliverables from an INdRA environmental consultancy is a series of detailed reports.  These reports will include a wide range of data analysis, feasibility studies, and hard legislative recommendations.

Legislative guidelines will provide sufficient background information on important stakeholder concerns such as best practices,  efficiency and effectiveness historical information, cost estimates, time lines, community impact statements, and model legislation.

Typical recommendations include public disclosure regulations, zoning laws, business development guidelines, commercial, residential and agricultural guides, and infrastructure projects.

INdRA project personnel will act in an explicitly advisory capacity for insurance and legislative purposes.  Where necessary appointments, temporary and open, will be accepted to address political or administrative requirements.

Legislative Support:


INdRA staffers, including legal and administrative experts, will assist in the development of legislative proposals that will implement the solutions recommend by the analysis of regional and local data.  Each recommendation will be delivered in a presentable form, with presentation graphics and model legislation drafted from a survey of existing legislation.

The INdRALegislative Research Department provides objective research and fiscal analysis for the client legislature.

INdRA revisor of Statutes department is responsible for drafting bills, resolutions and other legislative documents, provides legal consultation for members of the Legislature and legislative committees, and prepares and publishes the Statutes Annotated and cumulative supplements.

INdRA Legislative Administrative Services provides administrative and technical support for the Legislature and general public.

The INdRA Office of Information Services, which provides information technology support to legislators and legislative support staff.

The INdRA Legislative Division of Post Audit, which provides auditing services to the Legislature and helps evaluate whether state government agencies and programs are being run efficiently.


Project Implementation:

Depending upon the nature of the challenges being addressed, INdRA staffers will employ a variety of project management techniques.  Scrum ban, benefits realization management, and Prince2 are the primary project management approaches.

Our objectives are to move projects forward with sufficient transparency that stakeholders can easily report and justify progress to their constituents.

IINdRA  will supply world class subject matter experts to weigh in at all stages of the projects implementation.  These SME's will be on contract to review important elements of any project.  Those elements of most concern are structural implementation, industrial design, resource acquisition, and standards adherence.
