What is your project evidence vault?

The Project Evidence Vault is where you save the evidence you need to supply in order to make a statement about engagement and impact.

You should consider at the beginning of the project what kinds of impacts may occur and collect evidence during the course of the project. 

Evidence may relate to:

  • Awards or professional recognition
  • Commercial impact
  • Intellectual property 
  • Legal
  • Media
  • Policy or regulatory documents
  • Social media

Read Guidance on the types of evidence that could be collected (PDF).

When you save material in the the Project Evidence Vault, all members of your project team can access it.
