Achievements this period

  • Work on developing the IDM functional areas has continued.
  • Two design documents for the VRS component were written and circulated for review.
  • At the review meeting on 31.05.2021, agreement was reached to progress with the development of the VRS components with SharePoint. 
  • After many delays, some progress has been made on the infrastructure, we expect to have a DEV environment in place during the next reporting period.
