• Study of the organisational charts(s) of the institutes(s) 

• Study of the functions / activities charts(s) of the institution(s) 

•  Study of the annual reports, plans and programmes, and other internal documents of the institution(s) 

•  Survey of potential users using appropriate questionnaires
