Assignment 02: ICT Infrastructure Proposal Report

Background:

You should read the Queanbeyan Palerang Regional Council’s (QPRC) ICT Strategic Plan 2020-2024, available on the Assignment A02 page on LMS.

Objectives:

You need to produce a report that evaluates the content of the QPRC ICT Strategic Plan 2020-2024 and makes recommendations on the future ICT service management by QPRC.

This plan was prepared prior to the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic. You are being asked to evaluate this plan at the present time (Semester 1, 2021), and so you should also consider the issues being faced by the Council in coping with the current conditions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes the need for much of the workforce to work from home, and the need to rely on digital channels, such as video conferencing, to support interactions with customers, rate payers, supplies and other government agencies.

Specifically, you need to complete the following tasks:

1. Choose an ICT governance framework that you consider appropriate for the evaluation of the QPRC ICT Strategic Plan 2020-2024 and provide a justification for why you have chosen that particular ICT governance framework.

2. Evaluate the QPRC ICT Strategic Plan 2020-2024 against relevant criteria and guidelines that are derived from the chosen governance framework. You should not simply be critical but consider which components of the ICT governance framework are relevant to the objectives and context of the four key strategies in the plan. Consider the extent to which the QPRC ICT Strategic Plan 2020-2024 indicates an awareness of the provision of ICT service, ICT service management, ICT service orientation and ICT infrastructure management.

3. Provide a proposal that: indicates how the Council could enhance its ICT service management and ICT service provision, in line with meeting the current and future needs of the Council; is aligned with the Council’s key strategies, stated on page 5 of the QPRC ICT Strategic Plan 2020-2024; addresses the key gaps that you have identified in the current QPRC ICT Strategic Plan 2020-2024; and is aligned with guidelines from your chosen ICT governance framework

Please Note: This is an Infrastructure Proposal Report, and so step 3 above should be the most significant component of your report.

Requirements:

You should produce an ICT Infrastructure Proposal Report in the report format in the supplied template for this assignment on LMS. You should choose a recognised ICT governance framework (ITILv3, ITIL4 or COBIT) that you consider relevant to the need to evaluate the QPRC ICT Strategic Plan 2020-2024 and justify your choice of that particular ICT governance framework. You should analyse the QPRC ICT Strategic Plan 2020-2024 against criteria that are derived from the principles, guidelines and processes in your chosen ICT governance framework.

There should a statement of justification to support each key gap, derived from your analysis. You should produce a proposal that indicates how the QPRC ICT Strategic Plan 2020-2024 can enhance its ICT service provision and management.

This proposal must address the key gaps that you have identified in your analysis. You should keep to the scope of the QPRC ICT Strategic Plan 2020-2024. You may make any relevant assumptions about the QPRC ICT Strategic Plan 2020-2024 and must include those assumptions as explicit statements in your report.
