Tracker system launched
LOCAL residents will soon be able to view and track the progress of capital works projects across the Alpine Shire with council set to launch it’s Project Dashboard.
Alpine Shire Council acting chief executive Will Jeremy said the online tool allows residents to find and follow the projects which are important to them, in real time.
“The Project Dashboard shows the projects we are currently working to deliver in our communities,” he said.
“As each stage is completed the system is updated to show where we are tracking.
The dashboard was designed in-house and is one of the first of its kind in the local government sector.
“We’re really proud of this product,” Mr Jeremy said.
“There aren’t too many other municipalities, or government departments for that matter, which are displaying and tracking projects publicly in this way.
“It’s an example of our commitment to transparency and ensuring that our communities know where their rates are being spent.”
The dashboard uses five colour-coded icons to show the progress of a project across key stages.
The plan and design icons confirm the scope and timing of project work required and identify the functional requirements and final design documentation and estimated costs.
Procure is the phase in which council seeks and evaluates quotes for the works and appoints a contractor to undertake the project.
Build explains the implementation of the project works while the last dashboard icon, finish, details all minor works and hand over of the completed project for operation and maintenance.
The online project pipeline will be publicly released next week, showing where items are positioned for possible future delivery.
