Share Article

PMO Advisory, Olde Stone Consulting, and ASI Government are presenting a 1-day seminar in Washington D.C. on taking a proactive strategy through Portfolio Management for individuals, federal agencies, and contractors faced with the coming compliance obligations for the Program Management Improvement Accountability Act (PMIAA).

PMO Advisory

This seminar introduces the Program Management Improvement Accountability Act (PMIAA), public law 114-264, effective December, 2016. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) will likely have next steps to support the PMIAA, and the coming impact for Government Agencies and Federal Contractors. PMIAA will institutionalize everything from defined career paths and executive sponsorship to a standards-based program management policy that spans the entire federal government.

This one day seminar will focus on developing a standards-based (using PMI ANSI standards) program management policy across the federal government. How will a "standards-based" law and coming policy affect your organization? The 4 tier ANSI standard structure will be reviewed with a focus on Portfolio Management, which has been increasingly used across federal agencies. The seminar will discuss how Portfolio Management is more than a portfolio approach to the federal Capital Planning and Investment Control (CPIC) process or PortfolioStat review.

Participants will get the opportunity to see how portfolio management could link their programs/project up to the specific goals/objectives in the agencies’ strategic plans and how governance through the executive review committee (ERC) would be modified and the program level approach for business cases could evolve to portfolio views.


1. Participants will learn the fundamentals of the ANSI standards (PMI's Project, Program, Portfolio Management standards) and the four tier framework it outlines for governance.

2. Understand how the new PMIAA law could impact each agency through a standards based OMB policy. See how agency strategic plans, capital investment plans, and the framework used to manage related programs/projects could be impacted.

3. Work through potential answers to upcoming questions such as: How is the four tier standards framework different from the current Agency approach? How can agencies’ strategic planning processes be impacted in a way that it supports a portfolio approach? How can acquisition and CPIC processes be integrated with the four tier ANSI standard's framework? How can Enterprise Architecture and Enterprise Risk Management be enhanced using portfolio management?·How will PortfolioStat be affected by the portfolio reviews called for in the new law?

Who Should Attend: CIOs, Deputy CIOs, and CIO staff including IT planners, operations management and acquisition experts. Executives and managers of leading business programs that will eventually be held accountable to the performance of IT investments. Program Managers who are interested in the role of investment management within their programs. Federal Executives and managers interested in gaining insight into the CPIC process and practices, and understanding how it will impact agency IT service delivery and costs to their programs. CFOs, Deputy CFOs and staff, Chief Acquisition Executives (CAE) and senior staff, Program Executive Officers (PEOs) and their senior program managers
