The CIO Council's Project Management Working Group this month will make recommendations to the Office of Management and Budget on how to further establish the project management profession in government.

At the top of the list: Create a federal project management office. The office would collect and disseminate best practices and establish project management standards, said Emory Miller, the General Services Administration's director of IT professional development.

The report will make four other suggestions: Strengthen strategic planning processes by advocating that agencies measure performance and make sure agency senior officials understand the importance of project management; establish project management standards and advocate education; work with the Office of Personnel Management to create a project management job path and General Schedule series; and add project management competencies to Senior Executive Service skill requirements.
