14:16:30 [shadi]
[no disagreement voiced]
14:16:39 [Sarah_Swierenga]
we could add the business case link under the accessible web design section, so we don't need to add a new section there.

SAZ: may be useful if available to the evaluator, but not essential
14:26:45 [shadi]
...unlike tools used during evaluation
14:27:01 [shadi]
...important is to identify when what was tested
14:27:24 [shadi]
...but the developer has the necessary information about tools used to develop the website
14:27:33 [shadi]
PK: not suggesting it is a requirement
14:27:42 [shadi]
