German term or phrase: konstruktiv aufgreifen
this is from an internal memo complaining about poor handling of a project:
"Nachdem einige Punkte in der Projektabstimmung offen geblieben sind, wäre sinnvoll gewesen, dass Herr X bei seinem Besuch in H in KW 16/2001 diese Angelegenheit konstruktiv mit Abteilung ABC aufgegriffen hätte. Die Zeit dafür hatte er ausreichend zur Verfügung.

I can't quite get this one nailed down, and want to get it right, as somebody's being blasted here!
Thanks very much in advance for any suggestions.
