There are a lot of scientific and applied research devoted to discussion of problems in IT project man-agement. Theн mostly focus on the financial aspects and duration of a project. However, functional as-pects are often overlooked. This might be explained by the fact that such indicators as money and time can be calculated using appropriate methods and algorithms taking into account various risks. Mean-while, a reasonable numerical equivalent to determine project functionality still does not exist. When considering such specialized IT project as the design and development of an information sys-tem (or its separate module), the implemented functionality is a fundamental factor which affects all other project indicators. However, fundamental literature and periodical scientific publications pay in-sufficient attention to functionality as a semantic item for various reasons. Scientists and specialists are mostly interested in managing information systems requirements including functional ones. The for-malization of functional requirements is a subject for discussion in a scientific community and is con-sidered in various aspects. However, there are no standardized or unified solutions. The paper considers the issues related to functional requirements, features of their initial formula-tion, presentation for discussion with a customer and with formalization for software implementation in a project. The authors briefly analyze approaches to the formalization of requirements and propose an ap-proach to the formalization of functional requirements, which can be applied to certain types of tasks that are included in the software that represents an information system as a software product. This may be the first step to create prerequisites for the development of an algorhythmic component. Thus, for a more correct calculation of project complexity, and for more accurate planning of its financial and time costs.

The paper describes an automated information system (AIS) for assessing the efficiency of professional activities of academic staff in educational organizations of higher education. The proposed system is necessary to form a report on performance indicators of academic staff ac-tivities, based on which a head can quickly make management decisions. When applying AIS, the head of department, faculty or educational organization has an opportunity of selecting a suitable candidate for vacant positions; he is also able to form a so-called top of academic staff whose activities coincide with higher education development trends as much as possible. The authors present a formalized representation of the assessment process of an academic staff rat-ing as IDEF0 model and a decomposition scheme. During a decomposition of a software purpose model the authors allocate the following functions: maintaining data on the academic staff, rating calculation, forming report forms. Academic staff performance indicators are united into groups: educational, or-ganizational and methodical, research, scientific and organizational, educational and social work, repu-tation and image activity. The results of total rating assessment might be considered at competitive selection for a vacant po-sition and a subsequent conclusion of an effective contract, at funding acquisition of the equipment for scientific research, conference trips, training, etc., when determining the size of commercial incentive to salary. The used mathematical model of rating calculation is a method of qualimetric assessment of academic staff activity quality. The calculation includes basic, current and private ratings, as well as production and creative activity rating. The paper presents the developed algorithm to solve the problem, a data structure; shows AIS work and the obtained results.
