The way I understood it was that the emphasis was not so much on the
what and where, which is very interesting but also on workload in
relation to staff complement.

If I was wrong in my understanding, than I put the question myself :-)-O
How much time does a single allocation transaction take and how many
staff members are dealing with that?

This is separate from the capacity building.

by the way
