Key Dates

The Quick 10 is open to anyone, anytime. 

The Comprehensive Self-Assessment can be accessed and completed anytime throughout the year. 

Organisations that choose to opt for Evaluation and Benchmarking will receive their Accelerator or Comprehensive Roadmap reports within a reasonable time after submitting their Comprehensive Self-Assessment for review. The Benchmarking Results will be released following the submission deadline.

To ensure your organisation is included in the annual Benchmark, submissions must be made prior to the first Friday in December of each year.

Key Dates for the 2020 Benchmark Report 

  • 1 January – 10 December 2021: Organisations complete and submit the Comprehensive Self-Assessment. 
  • 10 December 2021: Latest submission date for inclusion in the 2021 Benchmark Report. Once submitted, your self-assessment is locked and cannot be updated. 
  • May 2021: Benchmark Report is released to participating organisations and launched at the AND Annual National Conference.

How long will the Comprehensive Self-Assessment take to complete? 

This will depend on a range of factors. For example, it may take longer if lots of people have been allocated to complete it, and whether they know where to find the information they need. How far your organisation is in its access and inclusion journey may also contribute to how long it takes to complete the assessment. We suggest dedicating at least a couple of weeks.


Our Access and Inclusion Index webinar is a simple, effective way to find out more about what the Index is, how it works, and how it will benefit your organisation.

A recording of last year’s webinar is available in the Member Area of the AND website.
