                   Reports (LA)

                      function

                   LA question
                   management
England user group prioritisation led
to:
• LA default question management
  – Spec developed

• Auto-upload of data
  – Most complex to develop, not been taken forward yet

• User notification on data submission
  – Spec developed

• Reporting review and Data output for
  external users
  – Review report delivered, to discuss in break-out.
            LA default question
• In development: when first entering data for a period,
  presented with template
• Template lists all questions available for all authority
  types
• Each question has tick-box to exclude it for the period
• Template saved across periods
• Quarter can be rolled up when all included questions
  are completed
• List will show whether a question is answered or not
• Questions in the list hyperlink to data entry
Screen shot of default question
         Auto-upload of data
• Most complex of development options
  receiving support of UG
• Implementation approach will be to
  make specification available for external
  parties
• Specification scheduled for
  development in future
User notification on data submission

• Already implemented for roll-up as part
  of the queuing process: user receives e-
  mail when the quarter is rolled up
• Being developed for authorisation
  levels: as the quarter moves up levels
  relevant users will be notified

             Report review
• Technical review carried out to find the best
  way of delivering reports/data from WDF.
• Inputs from User groups, steering group and
  development team
• Outcome was recommendation to expand the
  methods used to deliver the BVPI and mass
  balance reports to deliver all reports
       Proposed report mechanism
• Complex equations (such as BVPI) to be pre
  calculated (known as c-variables in the system)
• Reports are in essence collection of c-variables
• Layout and presentation of the data defined in a
  Excel spreadsheet, with data from WDF on back tab
• Report selection screen allows the user to pick:
   –   One or many authorities
   –   One or many periods
   –   A group of c-variables (eg BVPI 82a)
   –   An Excel template to push the data onto
  Benefits of report mechanism
• Reports allow benchmarking across any
  number of LAs
• Data in report is in Excel format and so
  doesn’t require re-entry for further
  analysis
• Excel template method provides the
  user with control of final look and feel of
  the report
         Other developments
• The above is a review of the development
  items from the England user group
  prioritisation.
• There are several other development tasks
  competing for time and resources driven by
  – Core WDF requirements
  – Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland needs
  – WDF system maintenance
