The Project Management Office moved from Information Systems and Technology to the office of the Vice-President, Administration and Finance (VPAF) effective February 1, 2024.  The Change Management Advisor originally reporting within Human Resources, also moved to VPAF.

The vision of Information Systems and Technology’s Project Management Office (PMO) is to be leaders in higher education for the identification, planning and execution of strategically aligned projects.


The PMO’s mission is to use and promote industry best practices, adapted to local need, to provide a department-wide approach to identify, prioritize and successfully execute a portfolio of IST work (i.e., initiatives, and projects). 

The mission is accomplished by achieving the following goals:

  • Promotion and consistency of IST services and processes related to project, program and portfolio management
  • Optimize resource utilization, focused on delivering value
  • Offer greater potential for skills growth and specialization amongst IST staff in key areas such as change management, risk management, portfolio/program/project management, and enterprise architecture
  • Provide project/program management tools and assets to support planning, decision-making, program and project work, and enhance related services and delivery
