Section One: Programme Commentary, RAG and Resources Update


Programme status: The overall status of the STU programme for February 2022 is AMBER due to Risk 14 noted below but also due to strike action which has impact STU267.


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: GREEN - Delivery achieved and decommissioning work underway ahead of closure
  • STU267: AMBER - Delivery date at risk as industrial action has prevented full planning to be completed however progress was made outside of the technical work.

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.
