Tim Coffey: According to Microsoft - the limit of Excel at the time was higher: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/excel-specifications-and-limits-1672b34d-7043-467e-8e27-269d656771c3#ID0EDBD=Newer_versions
Tim Coffey: This may be relevant to use of Excel in government: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/review-of-quality-assurance-of-government-models
It was released in 2013 and starts with: "Modelling is essential to the work of government. From predicting the spread of pandemic flu to forecasting population growth, models underpin decisions which affect people’s lives."
If my memory is correct, it was launched after a flawed use of Excel in a government tendering exercise that was challenged.
Usaid: how does this method handle aggregation of many DSAL0 (zero) risks? [Good question! To be taken up by the Working Group]
Angela Ounnas-O'Neill: Is this being implemented by NHSE to work in conjunction with the standards?
