What is a Program
Combination of executable projects and the funding actions that develop and sustain a program
Deconstruct Programs into hierarchical portfolios of:
Link each via dependency relationships
What capabilities do
I want/need to do?
What programs/ projects do I choose to do?
Objectives Performance Metrics
Proposed Portfolio Measured against Objective Criteria
Prioritized Funding Actions
How are my program/ projects doing?
How did my program/ projects do and did I deliver the intended capability?
Predefined ‘value lists’ of valid values for analysis, data quality
Red/Yellow/Green indicators automatically calculated based on business rules
Accounting detail, parameters to query in ABIDES to get financial data for this program
Metrics and Data Rolls Up to a Portfolio Level. Drill down into a mission area to see the programs in that portfolio.
Select any portfolio to analyze
70% of the Programs are underfunded
Axes can be any Value list or Numeric field (any non-Text field)
Color by any R/Y/G metric, size by any cost value (FY, Appropriation, etc.)
Calculated Health Score
Systems needing C&A
When do certifications expire?
Will system owners be ready for the wave?
