Twice a year, the IT Project Council publishes a status report on major government IT projects with regard to timetable, budget and benefit realisation. The IT Project Council has been publishing these reports since its establishment in 2011. A total of 79 IT projects have undergone risk assessments by the IT Project Council since 2011.
Status of projects and programs
A total of 29 projects have reported on their progress for the first half of 2017. The Council gives all projects a traffic light on the basis of the reports from the projects on any deviations from the planned timetable, budget and benefit realisation. In this status report, two projects received red traffic lights, six projects received yellow traffic lights, 20 projects received green traffic lights and one project did not receive a traffic light.
Evaluation by the IT Project Council
In its leader to the report, the Council notes that the authorities have launched quite a number of major, complex IT projects during the last half year. In fact, almost a third of the projects in the overall portfolio now have a budget of over DKK 100 mill, and the IT Council has assessed that just under 40 per cent of them have a high-risk profile.
The IT Council encourages the authorities responsible for these projects to adhere to the fourth principle for government IT projects regarding delineating projects in order to minimise their scope and complexity with a focus on the business objectives.
