Application Quality Assurance Checklist The Application Quality Assurance Checklist is intended to ensure “Custom-Built” applications adhere to development practices that promote quality solutions. It is recommended that the project team familiarize themselves with this checklist during the Design stage to ensure the developed application meets the quality standards when reviewed in the Execute stage. Design  Implement AIMS
Business Case The business case will outline the business rationale for undertaking the project. Concept Concept Client
Business Process Definition The business process definition will outline the business management controls & processes followed by the client department to manage and support the non-financial business associated with the project. Analysis Implement Projects
Business Requirements Document (BRD) The Business Requirements Document (BRD) clearly states the functions and capabilities that the application and/or system must provide for the project to be successful (what the system and/or application must do).  All known constraints, assumptions and dependencies must also be clearly defined. 

The BRD is the basis for all subsequent project planning, design and coding.  It should describe as completely as known at this time, the system’s behaviours under various conditions.  The BRD does NOT contain design information or anything related to how the system will provide the functionality.

The BRD may be modified after the Analysis phase if a COTS or Cloud solution is proposed.

Risk Assessment Workbook

(OCIO IP Division will complete the Risk Assessment Workbook )

At the conclusion of this IM / IP / ATIPPP engagement, the PM will receive a Risk Assessment Workbook that contains (i) the Information Security Classification and (ii) Pre-TRA Checklist and a Privacy Impact Report.The Information Security Classification ranks the sensitivity and criticality of government information and guides the process to place appropriate levels of security and protection around information assets.The PRE-TRA Checklist is a checklist that determines the need for any additional risk assessments:(i) Vulnerability Assessment (VA)(ii) Security Design Review(iii) a full Threat Risk Assessment (TRA). The need for additional risk assessments is determined based on the underlying Information Security Classification and the exposure of the system.The PM will initiate the IM / IP / ATIPP engagement by completing the ‘Request for Service: IM / IP Engagement” form. The PM must allow 2-3 weeks, from the date the request is submitted for the response. The PM is responsible to ensure that they allocate enough time in the project plan to conduct the follow-on activities coming out of this Risk Assessment Workbook / Privacy Impact Report.

Security Design Review –Report Response and Deviations

(Contact Enterprise Architecture to complete this deliverable)

 The Risk Assessment Workbook will indicate if a Security Design Review is required. Documentation and delivery of the Security Design Review Report is the responsibility of the independent security assessor.  If required for a project, the Information Protection (IP) Division – Independent Security Assessor is prime for this deliverable.

A Security Design Review assesses a solution’s proposed design from a security perspective, based on threats or risks that may occur at the architecture/design level; they are often recommended when building ‘environments’ or deploying ‘enterprise’ technologies. Identifying potential threats or vulnerabilities at the Design stage can avoid costly environment rebuilds after deployment to address unforeseen risks and vulnerabilities.  The output from this review is the Security Design Review – Report Response and Deviations Document.
