Capital Works Management Framework, Guidance Note, Glossary, Published by the Government of Ireland Department of Finance in 2009 suggests an output specification: ‘… is a specification that states the scope of the project in output terms and explains what is expected and when; it sets out clearly and unambiguously any perceived problems that still require resolution. It focuses on what the Sponsoring Agency wants to achieve with the project, and is based on the sixteen project parameters used for project definition. All information required for the realisation of optimal designs, within budget, should be defined and provided as clearly and efficiently as possible at this stage. Issues, assumptions and relevant research gathered for earlier studies should be clearly presented.’
