The Project Management Office (PMO) is a department within the Division of Information Technology (IT) that defines and maintains standards for project management to achieve UTPA's goals and objectives.
The primary goal of a PMO is to produce benefits by standardizing and following project management principles, practices, policies, processes, and methods in accordance with industry standard methodology and Texas Department of Information Resources requirements.
Over time, a PMO generally will become the source for guidance, documentation, and metrics related to the practices involved in managing and implementing IT projects within UTPA.
Although project managers within PMO also manage IT projects, projects are often managed by project managers within other IT departments. Below are two dashboards. The first dashboard shows a list of active projects including the project description, the IT department managing the project, and the target date. The second dashboard shows the projects that have been completed in the current fiscal year by quarter with the same individual project information.
