Annual Compliance Testing Project

Abstract:

Annual compliance testing, while a requirement for many organizations, is not always managed as a formal project. The objective of this capstone project was to take a project that had been in place for 12 years in the technology organization without any formal project management and manage it through formal project management (PMI) requirements. In so doing, additional insight was provided to the organization as to actual compliance costs on a year-over-year basis and where cost and time overruns were being seen. Additionally, recommendations were made for streamlining the annual project to reduce costs and impact to the organization and employees while continuing to mitigate risk and meet compliance regulation requirements.
