Agency Narrative
The Capital Development Board (CDB) is managing well over 600 projects. With the effects of the pandemic and the increasing number of employees retiring, CDB is maintaining its increasing project load that encompasses more involved projects with larger size, scope, and complexity. We were able to keep averages beneath our maximum threshold more easily when we had more seasoned staff and fewer projects. Although we have been hiring to address our growing workload, we have also had some retirements, and we may have additional retirements to come and new employees will have a learning curve. We are picking up where we left off while managing COVID-19 delays. However, our expectation is to to adopt more realistic project completion schedules that will require us to update our goals. Our metrics are manageable to a degree, and once all of our new staff get more acquainted with scheduling, our performance metrics will improve along with our goals.
