Report for February 2021

Report Date
February 2021

Achievements this period

  • Project Planning completed and milestones achieved.
  • Project budget secured.
  • Communications plan and stakeholder map nearing complete
  • ADA and System Design (IDM) documents progressed
  • Some business analysis completed

Issues

  • An issue with CRM licence cost has been identified this is detailed in PICCL Item 2. This item notes an emerging issue with the current strategy of using a CRM to replace the VRS components. Initial licence information for both Salesforce and MS Dynamics will be considerably more than we anticipated. This is mainly due to the high number of users who currently have access to VRS.

Next Steps

  • Complete ADA and System Design (IDM) and Design Review (for IDM) 
  • Start building the IDM components
  • Start technical build documentation
