Or is it just frozen because of the publication?
In the question behind this section of our survey the respondents were asked to indicate in what month the production of the content of the report begins and in what month it is completed. About 10 percent of the respondents produce the content between four to six months before the end of the fiscal year. The vast majority, about 40 percent of respondents, start content production during the second month before year end. 20 percent each start one or three months before year end.
Five percent of the respondents have chosen “Do not” as the option for “Content complete”, which might be a mistake, but at the same time gives a philosophical perspective to this question: is the content actually ever completed, or is it just frozen because of the publication?
Being a collaborative solution for designed documents, we understand that the need for being able to produce content in the ultimate layout or design of the report adds a lot of value to the people involved.
When the decision to engage consultants is made, seems to vary a lot among the respondents, However, two thirds of the decisions are made during three months: five months after year end or, four or three months before next year’s closing.
The time for following up last year’s work is very evenly spread out throughout the year which is a little bit difficult to interpret. There might be some miscomprehension regarding the question that led to this result.
Reviewing the report
How many times these important reviewers read the reports is also asked in the survey and compared to the survey performed in 2018 the results show increased reviewing of the information. We measure this by asking how many times the different reviewers are involved.
Nothing in these results is specifically asked about differences regarding reviewing the NFRD information and voluntary information. This may be an interesting topic to investigate further in coming surveys.
