Gateway 5: Stand down

  • At Gateway 5, the Project Board will seek confirmation that implementation of the project is complete. It will also require an initial assessment of lessons learned and anticipated benefits to be realised supported by a robust Benefits Management Plan to be in place.

    The Project Board will be required to assess that the operational service will meet business needs effectively, affordably and sustainably and is delivering its expected benefits.

    The Brookes Project Registry is to be fully updated with the project outcomes.
