This scorecard is a decision support tool to be used in conjunction with Project Level Indicators and management experience as an aid in assessing a project's risk and complexity level. Once the project risk and complexity level is determined, the Process, Methodology, and Documentation Guidelines will suggest the rigor and detail appropriate for that project risk/complexity level. This scorecard should be used as a guideline and not to render a decision on whether or not to move forward with a project. In addition, any project can be managed at a risk level higher than what it scores here, if desired.
