project description
Project Description

The Virginia Community College System (VCCS) has contracted with BearingPoint for implementation services to replace mainframe-based financial and asset management systems with PeopleSoft Financials (Version 8.9). In addition to the replacement of legacy software, the implementation of the Administrative Information System (AIS) for finance will include re-engineering of business processes (both automated and manual) and development and implementation of interfaces to VCCS and Commonwealth of Virginia systems with the objective of improving service delivery to our customers—the VCCS students, faculty and staff.

risk management activities
Risk Management Activities

Risk Identification – Continuous efforts to capture, acknowledge, and document risks as they are found.

Risk Analysis – An evaluation of each identified risk to estimate the probability of occurrence, severity of impact, timeframe of expected occurrence, triggers for mitigation actions, classification of related risks, and priority ranking.

Risk Planning – Establishes actions, plans, and approaches for addressing risks and assigns responsibilities and schedules for completion. Metrics for determining the risk status are also defined during this step.

Risk Tracking – Document risk status and monitor progress against the mitigation plan.

Risk Control – Implement tasks to mitigate or eliminate project risk.

Risk Communication – A consistent effort to document the risk status in the risk assessment log throughout all steps in the project and to communicate that risk status to all appropriate parties.
