If we're going to use the "circular" concept (rather than the waterfall) for the diagram, I share Ramon's concern re: points 1 and 2 following, and mentioned my concern re:  point 2 during the last teleconference - I don't think diagram  should be closed circular - I think it should be" open" at the top (like an inverted "horseshoe", starting with step 1 on the top right and ending with step 5 on the top left, making for a simple straightforward diagram illustrating the basic steps) - any clarifying/amplifying language re: this diagram could be placed in the diagram caption and/or explanatory text for the diagram..  Of course, if we're going with waterfall concept, please disregard this comment.. 

Thanks and best wishes

Hi all,

I apologise for the delay and absence, I was on holidays (smile). I hope I'm not late to comment about this...

1. I would change the position of the texts for the steps. Now it seems that the "step 5" is previous to "step 1" (in the natural reading order, since it is in the left-top). Maybe it is because of my narrow field of vision, but I always tend to start reading on the left side of the screen.

2. Although I understand the "evaluation cycle", it is still a bit strange that you "report findings" and from there you go to "define the scope". It seems to me that this would constitute a complete new evaluation, since the initial parameters are different, isn't it?
