Disposition Plan: Purpose

Let’s say that you want to retire a software application. Maybe it’s been superseded by new technologies which offers a better solution or you’ve embraced a new strategic plan. In either case, you need to archive all the data, files, software, hardware and equipment used by this system.

With this in mind, the purpose of the Disposition Plan is to:

  • Identify Disposition System – Provide the Information System and identify key information about the system undergoing disposition, including the rationale behind this decision.
  • Notify Users – Inform all system users of the planned date after which the system will no longer be available.
  • Transfer Data – Identify a designation storage location and transfer the data to be archived onto storage media.
  • Project Management – Coordinate tasks with Project Manager to ensure data is transferred correctly from the current system to new systems.
  • Prioritize Tasks – Identify and prioritize software to be stored including communications, systems and application software.
  • Convert Data – Coordinate data migration with the Project Managers of other systems so that the current system software and data is migrated correctly to new systems.
  • Archive Data – Identify where to store software products, such as code, components, and technical documentation in secure locations.
  • Dispose of Equipment – Identify equipment used by the system and how and where it will be disposed of.
  • Report Progress – Update the Project Stakeholder when you have successfully disposed of data, software, and hardware.
  • Close Project – Outline the steps to shutdown the project, including how project staff will be re-allocated, where project records will be stored, and when you will handover project facilities. You can also migrate data to the new system if it needs these files, for example, if the new system replaces the old one but performs the same role in the company.
