Portfolio Management provides the enterprise and agencies with the means to identify, evaluate and prioritize technology initiatives to ensure the state gains the greatest value on the dollars invested.
Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) interlocks with Portfolio Management through the Enterprise Critical Projects Review (ECPR) Panel, which is a monthly review of eight to 10 of the most critical projects in the state of Georgia. These reviews involve all of the key parties on an agency's project management team. They take place at the highest levels in the agency and the state to ensure that business objectives and results are being delivered and that attention and focus are provided when needed. The panel review is just one part of Portfolio Management, which monitors all IT project initiatives over $100,000 in total value.
Another essential part of Portfolio Management is the identification and tracking of IT initiatives through their life cycle, which currently begins with the submittal of the electronic Agency Project Request (APR) form. From here, the project is monitored through its life cycle with Project Assurance, aligned through the Enterprise Performance Life Cycle (EPLC) framework.
