Planned budget = $93.7M

 

Final cost = $1.7B {18x planned budget}

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Do a little review of some of the various articles, reviews, and insights into this project. Try to find a couple involving Luke Chung, who testified a couple times with congress about this project and his findings and opinions (expert SME?)

  2. Given the GAO’s findings on the budget and project controls oversight, or lack thereof, where do you think communications broke down with this project? Why all the errors in accurate reporting?

  3. If you were on this project, and planning out the communications portion of the project, what would you have recommended, and why?
