New Project Management Office Charter Accessible Online - 04/20/10

The charter defining and outlining the Business Systems Project Management Office (PMO) is available on the Committees and Teams page of the OnePurdue Web site, as well as the Business Systems Advisory Committee (BSAC) and Business Systems Steering Committee (BSSC) sites.

The Project Management Office Charter comes as the result of feedback regarding the priority process for OnePurdue Business Systems projects announced late last year. This spring during the prioritization process review, feedback indicated that staff wanted more information about how prioritization decisions were made and who was making them.

As the charter states, business systems support requires the collaboration of at least 14 teams, collectively termed the PMO. Banding together, the teams find solutions to operational problems and recommend and implement changes to both the SAP environment and non-SAP business systems.

The charter defines the PMO’s roles and responsibilities, its members and its responsibilities. The prioritization process pushes decisions down to the process owners and team leads.
Previously, the BSAC made recommendations to the BSSC for final project prioritization. The new process encompasses all business applications, computer systems, Web development and projects requiring more than one team’s participation.

More information about the project prioritization process is available in the Request and Prioritization Process document located on the BSAC Priority Process Web page. A new prioritized project list is posted to that site monthly. The latest priority list is dated April 6.
