Section One: Programme Commentary, RAG and Resources Update

Commentary

During July, MVM314: SEBI - Data Collection and Modelling was formally re-started and successfully deliver the Migration of local Tableau platform to Hosted service. 

A new project was also added to the programme, MVM316: Fragile X Registry website. It will support the work of the Patrick Wild Centre and provide them with an online registry of people with fragile x syndrome, and their families. 

The other three projects continued to be delayed due to PM and stakeholder availability. They are reporting an AMBER status and will all continue into next year. It is expected that they will be completed in 2019/20 Q1.

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.
