www.aipm.com.au Project Manager 7 As part of the Government's response to the $1.2 billion Queensland Health payroll bungle, a new website will offer increased accountability. "It drills down to the particulars and clearly defines initiatives and their issues, [as well as] the actions needed to resolve those issues -- giving clear timelines and identifying ow ners for each action," said Queensland ICT Minister Ian Walker. e first stage of the Queensland Gover nment's ICT dashboard is now available at w w w.qld.gov. au/ictdashboards for Queenslanders to check the current status of key ICT initiatives. e first of its kind in Australia, the ICT dashboard provides Queenslanders with information including the ICT initiative name, investment objectives, timeframes, implementation partners and costs. As a commitment to openness and transparency, it also provides a link explaining why initiatives have a red or amber status. e ICT dashboard contains data from the Department of Science, Information Technology, Innovation and the Arts as well as Queensland Treasury and Trade. All agencies will publish their data by 30 November to the whole- of-government dashboard, ensuring greater transparency and improving the management of all Government ICT initiatives. Proving its commitment to supporting both metropolitan and regional members, the NSW Chapter has opened branches in the Hunter and Shoalhaven/Illawarra regions. Regional members will benefit from an increase in networking opportunities, with five or six regional branch events expected to be added to the calendar each year. e newly established branches will also provide regional members with more opportunities to gain CPD points locally. e NSW Chapter has multiple branches, which AIPM NSW President Chris Mansfield says is a very significant step. "It demonstrates the NSW Chapter Council's commitment to its members' professional development not only in the Sydney metropolitan area, but also in regional hubs." Mansfield has already received positive feedback from members and says he encourages other States and Territory Chapters with large regional hubs to follow suit and support their local project manager communities.

W: www.aipm.com.au IT CLEARLY DEFINES INITIATIVES AND THEIR ISSUES, AND THE ACTIONS NEEDED TO RESOLVE THOSE ISSUES A first for PMO Accreditation Ensyst has become the first Systems Integrator in Australia to receive AIPM Project Managed Organisation (PMO) Accreditation. After establishing their PMO, Ensyst spent three years working on their process tools and templates to get the company to a stage where it was mature enough to go for the assessment. e first two years were spent developing and stabilising PMO tools and templates and integrating them into Ensyst's business functions. e third year focused on maturing the company's framework, methodology and lifecycle and getting the business to work as one entity. "To be endorsed by AIPM brought a lot of benefits in terms of giving our customers confidence in our lifecycle and the quality we deliver inside our projects," says Ensyst PMO Manager Milad Kruze. "Accreditation lets our clients know that our process meets industry best practice and that the Ensyst team works as one." Ensyst made the decision to become accredited when staff undertaking RegPM CPPD and CPPM identified gaps in the company's processes. "We pride ourselves on being the first system integrator to be accredited and would recommend others to follow suit," says Kruze. " To have our whole process end-to-end endorsed by the peak industry body gives consumers confidence and sets us apart from the others." AIPM National Director Trevor Alex and CEO Margie O'Tarpey personally presented the award to Ensyst at the company's head office in Sydney.
