Commentary

During June, conversations have re-started on MVM314: SEBI - Data Collection and Modelling. A way forward has been identified to move to a hosted service for the Tableau application. The project will be unsuspended and work resuming next month.

Other projects are continuing to suffer from delays with input from stakeholders and lack of availability. It is now expected that MVM302: Compute and High Performance Compute Strategy and MVM308: Research computing induction will continue into next session. These projects are reporting an AMBER RAG status

The overall status of the MVMRes programme is AMBER.

Please note that the project RAG status is following the revised guidelines: A one-page summary of the IS RAG status indicators is available on this page.
