Welcome to the Project Management Office

The Project Management Office (PMO) within Information Systems & Technology (IST) serves as a focal point for and provides leadership and stewardship for a number of key practices related to portfolio, project and program management. We accomplish this by providing resources and expertise to groups within IST and the broader campus community. Our scope of responsibilities includes such activities as:

  • Provide visibility, maintenance, and reporting for the IST portfolio
  • Advance our project and program management practice through the standardization and adoption of formal PM methodologies, tools and process
  • Provide skills and expertise towards the management of projects and programs
