Resources, Skills and Costs

Resources from the following teams are required to deliver this project:

  • Project Services   -  Project Manager                                                                                         12 days
  • Project Services   -  Portfolio Manager                                                                                      1 day
  • Student Services/Dev team                                                                                                           25 days

It is anticipated that no additional IS resources will be required, however MBChB assessment teams will be required. This remains dependant on how we define support, the initial view being that MBChB have the capability and capacity to take much of it on. Update April 30:- This will be reviewed with Suran Perera and Brandi Headon


  • Mainly covered by risks.
  • No additional IS requirements:-
    • Production supported by MBChB assessment team rather than Production Management
    • App Dev 'style' work is provided by Student Service Partnerships and App Dev team (Richard Arkless, Rob Manley, Paul Gorman)
  • Migrate the 'as is' MBChB approach to the execution of the student ranking process 
    • Take opportunities to improve business process as our understanding of the process and new reports increases


Project Governance

The project will follow the standard Information Services model.
