About Project Management

The primary goal of the Hazmat Project Management Office (PMO) is to achieve benefits from standardizing and following project management best practices across the organization.  PMO will be the source for guidance, documentation, and metrics related to the practices involved in managing and implementing projects.  To manage this environment, the Hazmat PMO will use a portfolio process to prioritize projects based on investment and strategic requirements.  The overall PMO implementation plan will include tasks for the assessment and development of training, best practices and tools.
