Current projects

All IT projects, whether they are managed by an ILS project manager or by colleagues outside of the Programme Management Office, are monitored and reported on monthly.

The Project Status Report provides a summary of the key aims of each project along with an update of progress in the last period and planned activity for the next period. Each project is assessed for progress against time, cost and quality with an indicative red, amber or green status assigned accordingly.

The university's Project Status Report defines these statuses as follows:

  • Red – Project is experiencing a problem which means the agreed plan needs to be adjusted.
  • Amber – Medium risk of timelines or project failing to deliver as originally planned.
  • Green – Project is proceeding to plan.
