A breakdown of costs and timeframes involved in the MyGov project
What parts of the project scope weren't completed by the delivered system?
Who was in charge of the project and what was the outcome of the system being delivered (is it dead/in use/continued development)?
Design work for the software that was to become MyGov started in May 2010 and cost £32,550. The www.mygov.je website went live on 13 September 2011.
The cost of development of the core system was £127,750. A further £15,425 was spent on enhancements prior to go live and £12,875 on changes in the three months after go live.
£2,500 was spent on promoting the system and £10,230 was spent on creation of an operational model.
The total cost of development of the system was therefore £201,330.
The Driver and Vehicle Standards department, Planning and Environment department and Treasury subsequently built functionality on top of the MyGov platform and funded that functionality separately.
All parts of the project scope were delivered.
The project was commissioned and managed by Information Services (a section of the Chief Minister’s department).
The system is in use, MyGov currently has 14,555 registered users. 4,517 of these users have signed up to receive job vacancy notifications. 2,764 users have signed up to receive planning application notifications.
MyGov was upgraded in 2014 and continued development is planned.
