Project Status Report

    The Project Status Report is a PDF document that includes Project information such as Project Name, Status, % Complete, Owner, and Project Health (KPIs). It also includes key tasks and active risks and issues.

The file can be found in the Files Related List. You may also choose to download a copy.
