"The Software Development Impact Statement (SoDIS), a modification of an environmental impact statement, is a way of addressing the need to modify project tasks in a formal way. A SoDIS, like an environmental impact statement is used to identify potential negative impacts of a project and specify actions that will mediate those impacts. A SoDIS is intended to reflect both software development process and the more general obligations to various stakeholders."
