Project Management Center of Excellence

Project Management

Project Management Center of Excellence, also known as the PMCOE, was created in the fall of 2013 and is responsible for oversight of approved IT projects.

The center establishes and supports standard project management processes at UW-Platteville, focusing initially on projects with technology components and projects related to the strategic plan. The office continues to expand its scope of services. It also offers assistance to other areas on management of projects by sharing processes and working materials. In addition, it establishes and tracks projects as a group using the principles of portfolio management. Its work includes supporting the development of project ideas for review and approval through the IT priorities process. 

The success of the center is measured by:

  1. Project completion percentage (on time, on budget, completed scope, and satisfaction of customers)
  2. Expansion of project management services from IT projects and strategic plan projects to a broader set across the institution
  3. Communication and transparency regarding projects in planning, underway, and completed at UW-Platteville
