GTA established a contract with Computer Aid, Inc. (CAI) to offer an enterprise-wide portfolio management application that GTA began rolling out to agencies in FY 2013.
The application, Georgia Enterprise Management Suite (GEMS), provides insight into the health and status of in-flight projects through the ability to combine traditional, quantitative operational data with qualitative assessment data from multiple stakeholders.
The benefits include:
- Anytime, anywhere accessibility since GEMS is a hosted, web-based application.
- Capability for all contributors – such as project managers, team members and other key stakeholders – to offer input about the status and health of the project.
- Easy monthly reporting.
- Better analytical tools that look at the entire range of project indicators.
- Improved visibility into the performance of projects, programs and portfolios throughout their entire lifecycle.
