Tracker sys­tem launched

Alpine Observer - - News -

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.
