Go-live checklist

The go-live checklist describes the activities that need to be completed by the agency project team during RealMe integration. While at first glance there may seem to be quite a lot of items to be completed, each of these typically get addressed in turn as the integration proceeds and it is unlikely that there will be any activities that will still need attention as the go-live date approaches.
