Overall, the Program and Project Management Section (PPMS) is cooperatively responsible for information management regarding the program's scheduling, resources and budget. Our section coordinates with project teams to create critical path schedules for programmed projects. PPMS collects, updates and reports on project data and scheduling information (e.g., advertisement dates, project cost, milestone dates, etc.). It is our job to monitor project scope and budget changes and to schedule data. Our responsibility to report to management teams the status of projects is essential to proper planning and maintenance of projects in predesign, design and construction phases.
