Portfolio Commentary, RAG and Resources Update


During January,  the bulk of the work was in the following projects:

MVM118: Deployment of FRY-IT Practique for MBChB reported the successful delivery of a significant milestone with over 20 exams delivered in November and December using Practique. The exams targeted all years (1, 2, 4, 5 & 6) and five that were executed externally on student own machines.

MVM522: MVM Business Process Review for SharePoint Delivery is providing options for taking SharePoint forward following consultation and workshops with stakeholders.

MVM124: WAM pilot for Biomedical Sciences - options review will also be able to  progress with the preferred option to join the CAHSS WAM pilot, after he project Board for HSS020 CAHSS WAM Extended Pilot agreed to continue the deployment of Simitive WAM on an opt-in basis. Use of WAM for Biomedical Sciences will be integrated in the deployment by CAHSS.

The last three projects directly address priorities identified for the portfolio for 2017/18.

There is a total of 23 active projects in this portfolio with eight managed by Project Services staff.
