Project Management

SicommNet will assign a certified project manager who will utilize project management methodology, to deliver eProcurement services online in an efficient, organized and timely manner. To achieve a strong collaborative effort, the management approach will be structured to:

  • Provide a single point of contact for overall delivery of the proposed eProcurement solution and integrations.
  • Establish a direct line of communication between the SicommNet team and their agency counterparts for responsive customer service.
  • Empower each level of the project organization with appropriate authorities and responsibilities to make decisions at the lowest levels to promote effective, operationally sound solutions.
  • Centrally manage the overall SicommNet team’s relationship to promote responsiveness and minimize costs;
  • Apply SicommNet’s project management best practices.
  • Respond efficiently to fluctuating workloads to provide timely and appropriate resources.
  • Our project management approach provides the sound, comprehensive oversight required to effectively address project requirements. It is designed for the agencies to realize the economy-of-scale however, the project plan also has built-in flexibility to address each department’s and sub agencies’ unique differences and needs such as varying organizational structures (centralized-decentralized), disparate technology systems/financial management systems, different eProcurement visions and issues, and different statutory requirements overseeing eProcurement and funding approaches.

    Our project management is designed with a phased implementation approach. This phased approach mitigates project risks and provides quick deployment for varying parts of eProcurement functionality. This allows agency to see benefits early in the implementation process.
