Highlights l.jpg

Challenges

Lack of clarity in roles and responsibilities among project team members

Unknown/undeclared applications discovered after on-site team arrived

Inconsistent project communications and coordination around schedule and plan changes

Desktop automated refresh process required more customization in all environments

Not enough leadership/visibility of VITA or Northrop Grumman, initially

Successes

Strong support and involvement by agencies and AITRs

Desktop refresh process worked well in agencies with less complex environments

Hardware was refreshed, with end user and agency sign-off

Completed desktop refresh early at VMNH and DEDR

Overall validation of process and strong lessons learned to improve that process for agencies to follow
