Report for April 2021

Report Date
April 2021

Achievements this period

  • Work on developing the IDM functional areas has continued.
  • Work on the Design document for VRS has been delayed due to annual leave. However, the draft VRS Design document has been shred with the  Head of Development Services, who will provide an estimate for the VRS build using Python instead of O365 tools. 
  • A second round of comms have been issued with more specific questions around service usage and allocation.  The project will schedule workshops with key stakeholders when this information has been collated.
  • Requirements gathering for bulk upload has started.

Issues

  • Again this month, the decision regarding the VRS solution is taking longer than expected. 
  • The technical resource assigned to the project could not honour the bookings. Resources bookings have been re-requested and another colleague from DevTech assigned to the project. 

Next Steps

  • Complete and estimate the design document for VRS components
    • make a decision on the solution for the VRS components
  • start stakholder workshops
  • Continue building the IDM components
  • Continue with technical build documentation

RAG Comment

  • The project is AMBER due to the continued delay on the design decision on the VRS components.
