Definitions

Project

For the purposes of the ITS Projects, a Project is defined below. These are recommendations. If the work is operational in nature or does not meet the definition of a project, it is not tracked as a project on the Project List. There will be another mechanism (phase 2) to track operational work.

A project is a funded and approved temporary work effort that is undertaken to create a unique product, service or result. Within ITS, projects are classified as minor, intermediate or major based on various indicators including work effort involved, complexity, impact and priority.

  • Human resource work effort between 40 and 160 hours
  • Low risk
  • Small project team
  • Minimal project management

  • Duration of greater than 60 business days
  • Human resource effort between 160 and 1000 hours
  • May be less than days in duration but estimated to be a greater than 160 hour work effort.
