Section One: Programme Commentary, RAG and Resources Update


Programme status: The overall status of the STU programme for November 2021 is AMBER. STU265 has delivered and is heading into delivery sign-off and closure but there has been delay in production of the brief on STU267, partly due to delay in the supplier completing some of the necessary contractual work.


Risk 14: AMBER - Unresolved issues on how to replace legacy UG & PG Degree Finder application - issue escalated to USG and ISG senior leadership team. Current UG & PG  Degree finder tech stack is legacy end-of-life code , and will get very difficult to make any substantial changes going forward,  if there are any external statutory drivers for change

Project Highlights

  • STU265: Data migration signed off and supplier oved data into Live environment
  • STU267: All five areas and stakeholders identified

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.
