Perth, Australia (PRWEB) October 24, 2011
The Western Australia Department of Health has partnered with integrated project services and solutions consultancy, Consulcad, to assist with the design, launch and on-going management of its newly consolidated Project Management Office (PMO). The Enterprise Project Portfolio Management (EPPM) system from Instantis called EnterpriseTrack™ PMO Edition was selected to provide the technology infrastructure.
The WA Department of Health provides health care services to nearly 2.3 million people and its Health Information Network (HIN) is responsible for implementing the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) project portfolio. The previous structure of HIN included two Project Management Offices (PMOs), each with its own project focus, personnel, practices and tools.
According to Consulcad, the key challenge was to assist with the integration of the two PMOs into a single office and introduce common tools, methods and systems to deliver a range of PMO services for major projects. Having met this challenge, Consulcad helps ensure the sustainability of the PMO in the near-term by providing experienced programming and scheduling experts on an ongoing basis to deliver master program planning, time and cost estimation, monitoring and management and dependency management by leveraging the EnterpriseTrack™ project scheduling and resource management functionality.
In the long term, the company continues to work with HIN post implementation in order to undertake quarterly quality reviews of the PMO, provide recommendations and support as required, and to assist in implementing process and technology improvements.
“We believe that the Consulcad-Instantis team is well positioned to expand our enterprise project and portfolio management solution footprint across the Australian government and commercial sector,” said David Henderson, Consulcad Director.
