Why a Briefing paper?
Decision makers have limited resources and time constraints They have to make hard choices about many different topics every day, and they do not have time to research each one in depth. A briefing paper helps bring a single issue to someone’s attention and fills in key details they need to know
It then proposes solutions and recommends improvements. Knowing how to write a briefing paper is a useful skill for students therefore. A persuasive briefing paper is concise research based and evidence-informed well-organised and covers the most important theories models technical issues supported by relevant data trends and potential solutions.
The most important point to remember about the structure of briefing notes is that they have three main parts that is:
• The purpose (usually stated as the issue topic or purpose).
• A summary of the facts (what this section contains and the headings used will be determined by the purpose of the briefing note).
• The conclusion this may be a conclusion a recommendation or other advice or both).
These three main parts are presented under some or all of the following section headings. Remember any Briefing note you write will only have the sections that are relevant to your purpose and audience.
• Issue also Topic Purpose :- A concise statement of the issue, proposal or problem.
This section should explain in one or two lines why the briefing paper matters to the reader. It sets out in the form of a question or a statement what the rest of the note is about.
• Background: The details the reader needs in order to understand what follows how a situation arose previous decisions / problems actions leading up to the current situation. Typically this section gives a brief summary of the history of the topic and other background information. What led up to this problem or issue? How has it evolved? etc.
• Current Status: Describes only the current situation, who is involved? What is happening now? The current state of the matter issue situation etc.
• Key Considerations: A summary of important trends data facts considerations developments every thing that needs to be considered now. While you will have to decide what to include and what to leave out, this section should be as unbiased as possible. Your aim is to present all the details required for the reader to be informed or to make an informed decision. Keep the reader’s needs upper most in your mind when selecting and presenting the facts. Remember to substantiate any statements with evidence and to double check your facts. Additional details may be attached as appendices.
• Options also Next Steps Comments :- Basically observations about the key considerations and what they mean a concise description either of the options and some times their pros and cons or of what will happen next.
• Conclusion and / or Recommendations :- Conclusions summarise what you want your reader to infer from the Briefing note. Many readers jump immediately to this section so be sure it covers the points you most want your reader to be clear about. Do not introduce anything new in the Conclusion. If you are including a recommendations section it should offer the best and most sound advice you can offer. Make sure the recommendation is clear direct and substantiated by the facts you have put forward.
