IT Project Management Framework


Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) practices are utilized within the CIO Area to ensure the successful and consistent delivery of projects.

Portfolio Management - "doing the right projects"

The CIO Portfolio Management Framework ensures that limited resources are focused on the highest priority projects in support of the University Cornerstone Plan, CIO Goals and CIO Roadmaps. Additional benefits are a greater level of project transparency and more integrated planning.
