Evaluation and Preliminary Testing of Project Management Software for use in Reclamation

Project ID: 1619
Principal Investigator: Amber Cunningham
Research Topic: Supporting Irrigation Districts
Funded Fiscal Years: 2016 and 2017
Keywords: None

Research Question

The current ESO project financial tracking system has evolved from a single
database into a complex network of interrelated Excel spreadsheets (Project
Management Excel Tool). Unfortunately, the system does not provide sufficient
functionality to meet existing mission requirements. Thus, ESO embarked on a
search for improved project and portfolio management software.

Need and Benefit

The steps in this effort were to build a project team, develop software
requirements, conduct market research on the internet, evaluate products of
several companies, and recommend software options that would later be
evaluated and tested to ensure the recommended product can meet critical
requirements.
