Commentary

During September, one project was sucessfully closed:

USG019 Development & Alumni CRM deployment has completed planning as scheduled. The remaining two projects are reporting an AMBER status because of delays to delivery caused by a technical issue discovered in UAT for USG016 Signal to PURE Application and staff availability due to covid for USG018 Mapping International Data Transfer.

The overall USG Other Programme status is GREEN.

We continue to monitor the ongoing impact from Covid-19 outbreak and disruption from the current Novel coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.
