Rationale of useThis method was chosen to ensure a systematic approach to the prioritisation of needs, particularly useful when uncertainty prevails in the process.
FunctioningA comprehensive table listing aspects of different needs is created. The Federal Ministry and the states list arguments for and against a high or low prioritisation of the needs. Based on this pre-selection, a 1-4 prioritisation is made in coordination with the states. This prioritisation is then discussed with stakeholders in a participation event, and stakeholder input is obtained in writing afterward.
Types of outputsAn Excel file with a numbered prioritisation that clearly presents the prioritised needs.
