The Level 2 Assessment
entails rigorous discovery of Level 1 findings (i.e. deficiencies).
Level 2 Assessment deliverables
1) root-cause attributions
to the general deficiencies identified in the
Level 1 Assessment;
2) an updated
'impact' valuation - this
is typically consistent with the
1 valuation (except in cases where
new, or previously overlooked,
deficiencies are identified); and
3) an SOW outlining a Remedial Engagement recommendation, including
a) the approach,
b) estimated effort,
c) estimated benefits, and
d) a detailed project plan, including:
i) resource requirements (FTEs, skill-sets, responsible parties, etc.),
and timing of phases
(including entrance/exit criteria for each phase), and
iii) capital requirements.
Level 2 Assessments average
6 weeks in duration, with a range of one to three months.
