Enterprise Project Management Office
Welcome to the Enterprise Project Management Office (EPMO) website
The Department of Information and Innovation (DII) EPMO is a service organization created for the specific purpose of supporting State of Vermont IT projects. The EPMO serves DII, other State Project Management Offices (PMOs) and business units throughout the executive branch.
The EPMO was created in 2006 out of the perception that State government technology projects were not adequately meeting the needs of those for whom they were undertaken. The observable problems with these projects included missed delivery dates, cost overruns, incomplete deliveries and dissatisfied customers.
Vermont statute changes implemented July 1, 2012 require the assignment of an appropriate Project Manager (PM) on IT Activities in excess of $100,000. The EPMO is required to review and approve these PM assignments, as well oversee, monitor, and control the IT Activities. This includes the EPMO’s responsibility to provide standards for the management, organization, and tracking of these IT Activities in excess of $100,000 across State government. More specific details can be found here.
Build an organization and environment that enables world-class proficiency in the application of project management fundamentals state (enterprise)-wide.
The mission of the EPMO is three-fold:
- Create a foundation for consistent project success throughout the State through development of a strong, pervasive project management (PM) and business analysis (BA) discipline.
- Manage strategic projects to a successful conclusion while improving the quality and repeatability of project life-cycle processes. These processes include business analysis and technology procurement.
- Establish, facilitate, and manage the enterprise IT project portfolio selection, funding and reporting process.
