Enterprise Portfolio Management

Our goal is to ensure IT project success and improve project management maturity practices through portfolio management, project assurance, and the development of policies, standards, guidelines, procedures and practices. We also provide consulting, training and education in support of our core mission.

Industry practice shows that a disciplined approach to project, program and portfolio management increases the benefits realized by the business enterprise from the investment in information technology assets and resources.

The Enterprise Portfolio Management Office (EPMO) helps improve the state enterprise's effective return by reducing project failures, increasing the percentage of project deliveries within budget and schedule, and more closely aligning projects to business priorities and strategy.

The EPMO is responsible for assuring that critical enterprise technology initiatives deliver on their promises and objectives. The EPMO supports these agency projects and works to ensure their success in three fundamental ways:

  1. Project Assurance – Provides guidance and counsel on the planning and execution of large, complex technology initiatives.

  2. Portfolio Management – Provides the enterprise and agencies with the means to identify, evaluate and set priorities for technology initiatives to ensure the state gains the greatest value on the dollars invested.

  3. Knowledge Management – Provides the means to learn continually from our practices and experiences, recognizing that our capabilities need to evolve and improve.
