Kate now needs to know how The ATA should be tracking the project’s progress without imposing a complex process on a relative low value project (as important to the East Timor society as it is) and overloading her limited resources. She wants to know how her finance is tracking, how well the project is adhering to the schedule, how well her risk plan is working and whether there is any emerging risk and anything else you deem necessary for project reporting and governance purposes.
