Establishing a PMO in an HE environment

Publication name:Establishing a PMO in an HE environment
Author: UCISA

Categories: Best Practice Guide


The purpose of this document is to provide guidance for higher education institutions considering establishing a Project Management Office (PMO) function.  It includes advice on designing your PMO and on implementation as well as providing a set of example artefacts.  This guide particularly addresses the situation where the PMO is looking after business change and IT projects only, rather than a joint Estates/IT PMO, although much of the following will be applicable in both cases.

This guide forms part of a set of UCISA Project and Change Management publications including the Major Project Governance Assessment Toolkit and the guide to Effective Risk Management for IT and Business Change Projects and is intended to be used in conjunction with them.
