University of Virginia IT Project Management Guidelines
The University is committed to continuously improving the delivery of IT solutions within budget, on schedule, within the scope, and in such a way as to best contribute to accomplishing the University's strategic mission. To this end, an IT Project Management Methodology has been developed to assist IT project leaders in planning and managing their projects. A toolkit of templates and guidelines is provided to facilitate the delivery of IT solutions within budget, on schedule, and within scope.
For any project, it should be the goal of the project manager to consider these guidelines and take appropriate actions to ensure the project's success. This should include both the preparation of documentation and the establishment of a plan for oversight applicable to the complexity of the project.
In addition, the Security Review for Projects Questionnaire facilitates the identification of security requirements for a given Information Technology Project by helping project teams think through various potential risks such as highly sensitive data exposure, outsourcing of Mission Critical IT services, and so on.
