    (1) Purpose and Applicability

    (a) Rules 74-1.001, F.A.C., through 74-1.009, F.A.C., will be known as the Florida Information Technology Project Management and Oversight Standards. These rules include two separate sets of requirements - project management standards defined in Rules 74-1.001, F.A.C., through 74-1.008, F.A.C., and Agency for State Technology (AST) project oversight requirements defined in Rule 74-1.009, F.A.C.

    (b) This Rule establishes project management standards when implementing information technology (IT) projects. These standards are documented in Rule 74-1.001, F.A.C., through 74-1.008, F.A.C. State Agencies must comply with these standards when implementing all IT projects., and, pursuant to Section 282.0051(15)(a), F.S, Cabinet Agencies must comply with these standards when implementing adopt the standards contained in Rule 74-1.001, F.A.C., through 74-1.008, F.A.C., for IT projects that have a total cost of $25 million or more and that impact one or more other agencies. For all other IT projects, Cabinet Agencies are required to either adopt these standards or adopt alternative standards based on best practices and industry standards. (See 282.00515, F.S.). These standards are documented in Rule 74-1.001, F.A.C., through 74-1.008, F.A.C.

    1. Operations and Maintenance (O&M) activities that support an existing product or service to keep it in conformance with its originally intended specifications, functionality, and service levels are exempt from these standards. O& M activities include:

    a. Adaptive Maintenance - the modification of a product, performed after delivery, to keep a product usable in a changed or changing environment.

    b. Corrective Maintenance - the reactive modification of a product performed after delivery to correct discovered problems.

    c. Perfective Maintenance - the modification of a product after delivery to detect and correct latent faults in the product before they are manifested as failures.

    d. Preventive Maintenance - the modification of a product after delivery to detect and correct latent faults in the product before they become operational faults.

    The terms above originate from the International Organization for Standardization standard No.: ISO/IEC 14764:2006, which may be found at: https://www.iso.org/obp/ui/#iso:std:iso-iec:14764:ed-2:v1:en.

    O&M activities include, but are not limited to, break-fix actions, routine software upgrades, and network component replacements.

    (b) The Agency and AST will assess schedule, cost, and scope variance based on the defined, documented, and approved Project Management Plan, budget, and the baselined schedule and spending plan. cooperate to establish agreed-upon project oversight parameters (including schedule, cost, and scope) that will serve as the basis against which all project variances will be measured.

    1. The project oversight parameters must be reviewed and approved by the Agency Project Sponsor (or designee), the Agency Project Manager, and the AST Project Assurance Manager within 15 business days of the beginning of AST project oversight.

    2. The project oversight parameters may be revised during the life of the project based upon completion of the Agency’s formal change control and governance process. Revision to the parameters must be reviewed and approved by the Agency Project Sponsor (or designee), the Agency Project Manager, and the AST Project Assurance Manager.

    (b) The Agency will provide the project’s Risk Management Plan to AST within 15 business days of the approval of the project oversight parameters. AST will review the plan and provide comment(s) to the Agency within 15 business days.

    (c) thorugh (d) No change.

    (4)(e) AST will review and document the project’s progress on a monthly basis. The purpose of the review is to determine trends in schedule, cost, and scope variances, (using the project oversight parameters approved project management plan along with other project baseline and actual documentation) and assess project risk and issuesmanagement practices. AST will further examine projects trending out of variance, review its findings with the Agency, and, if necessary, make recommendations for corrective action(s).

    1. If the monthly review indicates that the project exceeds acceptable variance ranges (see 74-1.006 Monitoring and Controlling for definition of acceptable variance ranges) in schedule, cost, or scope, AST will perform a diagnostic risk assessment, which will result in preliminary findings and recommendations for project corrective action.

    2. The Agency will respond in writing to AST’s findings and recommendations within 5 business days of receipt of the findings. This response will include a corrective action plan for bringing the project back within acceptable variance ranges.

    3. AST will review the preliminary findings, recommendations, and corrective action plan with the Agency.

    4. AST will finalize the monthly review document (including a summary of the risk assessment, recommendations and the corrective action plan) for review by the Agency and AST management.

    (5)(4) AST will report quarterly to the Executive Office of the Governor, the President of the Senate, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives on any information technology project that AST identifies as high-risk due to the project exceeding acceptable variance ranges (pursuant to Section 282.0051 (4), F.S.).

    The quarterly report will follow the same process and format as the monthly review. Following the same process as the monthly review described in (3)(e) above, Tthe quarterly report will include a discussion of the risk assessment, including fiscal risks associated with proceeding to the next stage of the project, and a recommendation for corrective actions required, up to and including suspension or termination of the project. Agencies will review and acknowledge the quarterly report (or provide feedback or response) in writing to AST within 5 business days. 

    (6)(5) Any project meeting the criteria for AST oversight must adhere to the requirements of a Risk and Complexity (R&C) Category 4 project.

    (7)(6) The Agency must use a PMP® Certified Project Manager for any project meeting the criteria for AST oversight. The PMP® Certified Project Manager must oversee the entire project scope. If the Agency designates a PMP® Certified third party or vendor Pproject Mmanager, the Agency must also designate an Agency employee in a Project Manager role that is ultimately responsible for the ensuring compliance with the rule and the successuful execution of the entire project effort. The designated Agency project manager and that will serves as the primary point of contact for AST.

    (8)(7) Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) must be employed throughout the project lifecycle for any project that meets the criteria for AST oversight. The Agency will purchase IV&V services in compliance with section 287.056, F.S., or procure such services in a manner consistent with Florida procurement laws. The Agency will collaborate with AST when creating solicitations and contracts for IV&V services, and when identifying the amount of funding to be requested for IV&V as part of the project’s Legislative Budget Request (LBR). IV&V contract deliverables, including invoices, will be provided to AST at or around the time they are delivered by the IV&V vendor to the agency.
