FAQ-239: “Justifying” decisions
Question: How much detail must I include when the rule requires that I "justify" an action or decision?
Answer: A documented justification should include technical rationale completely describing the basis or reason for the decision. It is not sufficient simply to re-state the decision without describing why it was made.
