We undertake Project Management and Project Assurance of ICT related projects.
This service is available to all University departments and can be requested by completing the Work Request Section of an ISS Work Mandate. If assistance is required with this, contact the Business Analysis team via the Service Desk; please ensure you state in your logged call that this is for the Projects and Architectures unit. On receipt, all Work Requests go through a prioritisation and approval process, in which the requester will be fully involved.
The Projects and Architecture unit within ISS will review the request and it will be assessed for strategic fit (via the mandate) and value for money and the return on investment (via the business case). It may need to go to the ISS Senior management team for approval. If approved the Projects and Architecture unit will allocate either a Project Manager or a Project Assurance role. The project will then be run along LondonMet PRINCE2-lite lines with the Projects and Architecture unit ensuring audit compliance and enforcing governance
