The project status is AMBER due to the following:

  • Budget increase requested 31 May due to re-estimation and scope increase (PureINT Interface de-commissioning work).
  • Scope has increased to cover additional work.
  • Resources not yet confirmed.

Additional Information

Project re-estimation after the project resumed has resulted in a revised estimate of 125 days. This is a result of increasing the scope  for GDPR and Cloud Portal work  (WIS approved 17/5/19) and now an additional scope item covering the de-commissioning of the PureINT Interface. This relates to Jira ticket RIS007-31.  At a project meeting on the 29th of  May it was decided that 3 more days need to be added to the project estimate to account for the de-commissioning of PureINT interface (feed, code) and that this would be handled by DevTech.  The Business lead and the project sponsor have both been notified of this re-estimation.  This increases the number of days for the project work from 100 days to 125 days (41 in 2018/19, 84 in 2019/20) in total.  However it should be noted that the 125 days includes 18.5 days for v5.14 upgrade which the project is currently considering not doing. Therefore the anticipated final estimate for RIS007 will be 106.5 days rather than the 100 days.  Programme Manager currently discussing with Production Management.
