Abstract

Reformers have tried to improve federal program management for decades. In late 2016, Congress finally passed legislation—the Program Management Improvement Accountability Act (PMIAA)—to establish standards, define competencies, and conduct progress reviews that improve program and project management at a government-wide and agency level. This report offers a framework for how the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the Office of Personnel Management, and agencies should develop standards and competencies for program management. The report is designed to help agencies understand the full range of skills and experiences needed across the range of program management needs in government. The report includes concrete case examples of program managers who demonstrate the skills and experiences needed for the different types of programs, and a set of practical recommendations for implementing PMIAA requirements in a way that maximizes potential for success.
