                                    Brief Summary of Project Progress
(Used to describe the current status of the project)

Example: Development work has been continuing this week and the delivery to the testing team is on schedule for
Monday. An operational issue with regard to delivery of monitoring hardware has arisen. This is critical and could
affect the delivery of the Completion of Build milestone, which would delay the final project delivery date by 5
working days. Alternative hardware is being sought. The design of the marketing materials has been completed, and
is awaiting sign off from the Director of Marketing.



                                                  Project Status
                    (Is the project being delivered on time and to budget as per the project plan?)

On Budget:            (Is the project on track, over or under the agreed-upon budget?)

                      Example: The project is currently running $2,000 over budget. This was due to the addition of
                      a technical analyst to the team as agreed upon in the meeting on June 20. There have been no
                      budget changes since the last report.




On Delivery Date:     (Is the project delivery date projected to be earlier, later or on target compared with the initial
                      project plan?)

                      Example: The project is currently forecast to be delivered 5 days late. The new delivery date is
                      August 13. Please see issue 157 below, which details the reason for this. In brief, the supplier
                      cannot deliver the monitoring hardware until July 17. The operations manager is currently
                      seeking a new supplier to determine if this date may be brought forward to get the project back
                      on track.

On Resources:         (Are more or less resources being used than projected in the project plan?)

                      Example: There have been no changes since the last report.
