DPC RAM has continuous improvement at its core!

Though it can be used for a one-off exercise it is recommended that it is applied on a more regular basis to highlight progress or demonstrate where further resource is required. It has been designed to provide a rapid assessment of current capabilities so it should not be too onerous a task to apply it on a regular schedule.

DPC Members will be encouraged to complete the DPC RAM on an annual basis.

"The DPC RAM was an easy tool to understand, straightforward to implement, and took around an hour of my time to complete. The RAM itself was incredibly useful in helping identify our digital preservation strengths, but also areas for future development and work. The RAM is written in such a way as to encourage reflection at an organisational and strategic level, and I found it a useful addition our existing policy and procedural documents."
