 Documentation of processes is critical for the process.
 Participatory and inclusive approaches such as linking
  technocrats within the NSO with specialised subject
  areas in MDAs
 Production of Annual Sectoral Statistical Abstracts has
  driven allocation of funds to statistics in the sectors.
 Emphasis of the concept and function of a ‘SYSTEM’
 with inter related parts, culture, norms, and values.

 As noted, the PNSD and SSPSs have expired.
 Arrangements to update are underway. Modality will be
   similar to the PNSD cycle but focus will be on:
     Harmonisation of Statistical production with
      development, policy, Budget and M&E
      frameworks
     Coordination of efforts across the NSS
     Quality Assurance through self assessment
      followed by audits.
     Meeting User needs and assessing satisfaction.
