Closing, Reporting and Archiving
What you do after your engagement closes is as important as the engagement itself. People want to know what you did with their feedback:
- What were the results?
- What did you hear?
- What is happening next?
- What is the timeline?
- How will they find out about any changes?
Closing doesn’t just mean shutting down your website and walking away. You need to report back to the public on the results from your project. You also need to record and archive your work in line with government record keeping standards.
After closing, a final summary including details of what will happen next are recorded in a Results Page on govTogetherBC. Results pages outline the public engagement process and record results, so people can follow the progress of a project.
It is important for ministries to check in regularly to keep the information on their project’s results page current.
