Assessment Tool For Identifying Major Projects

This tool is used to identify major projects and is based on an assessment of the following project characteristics:

  • Total cost of the project over 48 months
  • Impact of the project on students and staff
  • Complexity of the project
  • Reputational impact on the University if the project runs into difficulties

The Project Manager and Project Sponsor complete the assessment as part of the initiation of the project. Enter the score for each element to determine whether the project is “Major” or "Normal". This scoring will determine the appropriate governance requirements for the project – see the Major Projects Governance Assement Toolkit for additional resources and information.
