Information Technology Project Management Policy
Statement of Purpose
The Maine Chief
This policy applies to all Agencies within the Executive Branch of Maine State Government.
It is the policy of The Office of the Chief
Project management standards, best practices and related templates developed by the Office of the CIO, Information Services Managers’ Group and state project mangers are published on the CIO’s Project Management Protocol website and available to all State Agencies.
Projects with high political visibility, new technologies, high security risks or major re-engineering will be required to follow all the reporting requirements outlined on the Project Management Protocol Website, including the submission of a standard monthly project summary report to the OCIO. Additionally, at his discretion, the Chief Information Officer may request reporting to provide additional oversight on projects with smaller budgets.
Should it be felt that there is justification for a waiver related to any area of this policy, an agency must document a compelling technical or business case which would warrant the exemption. This documentation must then be submitted to the Office of the CIO for approval.
