IT projects within the government have to follow the government IT-project model. This ensures a better foundation for projects and thereby more successful execution. However, this also demands time, resources and thorough project competencies. Peak’s consultants both advise and execute on all phases of the model.
The government IT-project model is an obligatory project model, that ensures a common framework for all state IT-projects regardless of budget. The model is defined by the Agency for Governmental IT Services, based on PRINCE2® and contains a phase-model as well as administrative documents and guides for their application. The goal is to help the authorities identify benefits, handle risks, and not least complete the project successfully. These administrative documents must be used throughout the entire project and updated as the project develops or changes. Furthermore, a specific requirement regarding risk assessment applies with the Agency for Governmental IT Services to projects exceeding 15. Million or acquisitions exceeding 70. Million., as well as a biannual status report and follow-up on benefits.
