Portfolio Commentary, RAG and Resources Update


During April, two new projects were started in MVM Learning and Teaching (MVMLAT):

This takes the number of ongoing projects across the portfolio down up 16, ten projects are managed by Project Services PMs.

There are two projects reporting a RED RAG status:

  • MVM130 Upgrading of teaching spaces 2018/19 where refurbishment works in WGH managed by the Estates department are scheduled to complete on the Friday before start of term on Monday leaving no room for contingency. Mitigation is in place to allow other preparation work (i.e. AV installation) to take place in parallel to the building work. Plan for alternative teaching locations is also being explored as a contingency plan.
  • MVM509 Implementation of Vet Practice Management System where a delay in the delivery of the final tweaks to the application by the supplier has allowed the potential for some scope creep. There is now a decision to be made as to whether the project closes or additional scope is added.

All other projects are reporting a GREEN or AMBER RAG status.

The current burn rate of 65%  is slightly behind what is expected at this stage of the year (75%)  but it is expected to increase due to the new projects starting.

The monthly reports for the programmes are available below:
