This is the phase that precedes the establishment of a formal project. This is why nobody formally holds the role of project owner or project manager at this point.
Decision point 1 (BP1)
The concept phase forms the basis for the preparation of a project proposal and ends when the project proposal has been approved. At this point the project owner is determined. The project owner is in turn responsible for finding a project manager.
If the project meets one or more of the portfolio criteria, the rector decides decision point 1 on recommendation from Tjenesterådet.
The portfolio criteria:
- The project has a duration of more than 6 months
- The project requires resources beyond the concerned unit (especially scarce resources such as IT, SK, procurements and continuous faculty participation).
- The project has a budget of more than NOK 1.5 million (internal labour costs not included).
