Business requirements and technical/end of life review continued, with follow-up on Research Grants and assessing security implications on technical recommendations
Additional follow-up was required to validate business requirements, which has lengthened the time spent on business analysis and impacted the timescale for the recommendations report and therefore project delivery
As the recommendations report has yet to be finalised, and will require review by the project team, Apps Director and Chris Lawford (HDS) as a minimum, the Delivery milestone has been missed and the Time indicator has been shown as AMBER this month, with delivery still expected by end of July but with Scope (Quality) indicator also shown as AMBER recognising the limited time remaining to source all the points for the analysis
Project budget has a surplus - budget reduction from 100 to 55 days was approved by sponsor but needs to be processed through IS Applications governance.
