Business Services is also responsible for the management of the processes for the departmental projects. The IDOC Project Management Office (PMO) provides professional project management services by coordinating, facilitating, and accelerating the implementation of strategic IT and business-focused projects within the department. PMO project managers plan and manage projects approved and prioritized by the Leadership Team or mandated by legislative initiative. They apply formalized and systematic processes with a collaborative approach to maximize the achievement of project goals within defined scope, schedule, resources, and deadlines. Projects managed by the PMO vary in terms of complexity and time lines, but usually impact or draw resources from multiple divisions and/or bureaus, and may also involve other government agencies, organizations, and outside contractors.
