330 Project Server

The current Portfolio Management spreadsheets used within the PPMO are no longer fit for purpose or functioning as designed.  The installation of MS Project Server Online will enable a new system of record for inflight projects which will provide better:

1) Project progress reporting

2) Simple level Portfolio reporting

3) Resource allocation and Project Capacity management

Without this in place, ITS are unable to effectively track project progress, highlight risks and issues, manage project resources and prioritise workload.
