Finance Plan

When doing a finance plan be sure to research the costs thoroughly, do not guess the costs. Get quotes from suppliers and include these in your plan as well as the names of the suppliers and the date you obtained the quotes.

Your actual financial costs may vary from your proposal. If this occurs, treat it as an opportunity to demonstrate ongoing evaluation. You could do this by using a spreadsheet that shows a progressive balance.

To prove your financial records are accurate you must keep all reciepts and include them in you folio as evidence of your actual financial costs.

Resources

You nedd to select resources which are appropriate and identify their use in the MDP as well as explaining why you choose to use them. You need to justify your choice and selection.

Resources can be divided into 2 types:

Human resources - include people, skills, knowledge and attitudes.

Non-human Resources - all items that are used to help acheive the MDP.

You need to identify and list all resources that you will use and show in the MDP where you have used them. You need to discuss your choice of particular resources over similar products available.
