Project Overall Health Comments
Red
• The Integrated Multi-Pollutant Emissions Inventory (IMPEI) project remains in Red status because of the system integration vendor’s contract termination that results in the current hold status pending re-planning activities underway. • However, this status will be re-assessed in the next reporting period based on the final CDT disposition of the Special Project Report (SPR) to re-baseline the project. • The CDT review of the SPR was completed in June 2020, and the approval letter has been routed for signature at the time of this report.
