Introducing the Indirect Cost Drivers (ICDs)
ICDs are a set of values identified by the 4C Project as being significant in the practice of digital curation today. These ICDs may incur cost but the costs will either realise a specific benefit or mitigate a particular risk. These are the main incentives for incurring any costs associated with ICDs. Applied at organisational management level ICDs and related risks and benefits help to inform decision making about curation investment and help to shape business cases and sustainability strategies.
