ERAC Services provides four types of generic PIA templates:

  • ERAC evaluated and approved products or services;
  • BC Government approved products or services;
  • Non-ERAC evaluated or approved products or services, are an Industry Standard ; and
  • other: at the direction of ERAC’s Executive Committee.

No two PIAs will be exactly the same. There will be significant differences between districts even when the same product or service is being assessed. Districts will have:

  • different approaches to utilizing district funds and staff,
  • unique mitigating strategies and risk tolerance; and
  • varying deployment strategies. (Pilot, partial or full district)

The first five sections of Part 1 – General, sets the context for how the product or services will be used.
