This document is the deliverable “D1.1 – Project Management Plan” of the European project
“SIMPATICO - SIMplifying the interaction with Public Administration Through Information technology
for Citizens and cOmpanies” (hereinafter also referred to as “SIMPATICO”, project reference:
The SIMPATICO Project Management Plan (PMP) is the main planning document and describes how
major aspects of the project are managed, monitored and controlled. It is intended to provide
guidance and direction for specific management, planning, and control activities such as schedule,
cost, risk, communication, quality, etc. The focus of this document is to describe the approaches
being taken in the project to manage the various work packages, share and store documents,
communicate among consortium members, control the quality of project deliverables, identify and
mitigate risks associated with the project.
Benefits of creating a Project Management Plan include:
· clearly define roles, responsibilities, processes and activities;
· increase probability that projects will complete on-time, within budget, and with high degree
· ensuring understanding of what was agreed upon;
· helping project teams identify and plan for how project activities will be managed (budget,
quality, schedule, etc.).
The PMP is a living document and should be updated continuously throughout the project. The main
updates will concern project KPIs, project risks and ethics concerns, which will be regularly updated
on the meetings of the Project Management Board (PMB). After approval by the PMB. the updated
PMP will be uploaded in the SIMPATICO website. The final update of the Project Management Plan
will be released at M36.
