Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) Wave Control PPO
Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) is responsible for delivering a significantly enhanced capital works infrastructure program over the next five years, to 2020, valued at approximately $16B. This capital program is driven by the NSW Government initiative to address transport issues and deliver new networks for the future. The portfolio included management of 250 projects, which are to be managed through 5 separate program offices (PMO). The ‘Wave Control’ project has been established to define and implement a governance framework for implementation of consistent, integrated program controls across all infrastructure projects. TBH worked both within the Infrastructure Portfolio
Support Office (IPSO) and within the project controls teams of the Program Offices.
TBH developed tools and processes, which integrated the time, cost, risk and reporting functions. Some of the key deliverables included design and development of the Schedule Management Framework. This framework is integrated into the overall project management, which includes governance, schedule, cost, risk and reporting.
This establishes transparency, consistency and traceability across all of the major disciplines.

- TBH provided full training and “hands on” workshops to all RMS staff across the program offices to officiate the new frameworks and tools
