Section One: Programme Commentary, RAG and Resources Update


  • The programme's current status is GREEN, with HESA project progressing to plan.
  • The programme manager completed a review of open programme risks in January 2020 and has requested confirmation from People and Money (P&M) programme that risks relating to current Oracle HR & Payroll and eRecruitment systems are fully transferred to the P&M programme and therefore can be closed for the HRS programme. This has been agreed but the programme manager has asked for confirmation this programme will not be required to complete any end of life mitigation work given the revised delivery milestones for phases 2 and 3 of the P&M programme. In addition a new risk regarding HESA for 20/21 has been raised with Director of HR Services.
  • The programme may be affected by the Coronavirus risk as noted at Portfolio level.

Please note that the project RAG status is following the guidelines available on the Project RAG status guidance page.
