Project Management

NSU Project Management Office
OIT Project Management Office

The Project Management Office is a unit within the Office of Information Technology designed to provide a centralized and coordinated management hub for all IT projects, with the purpose to create efficiencies between projects—as well as defining standards in the project management process. 


The NSU Project Management Office (PMO) is committed to defining and maintaining project management processes, identifying and standardizing economies of repetition in project execution, and serve as a source of guidance, metrics, and documentation in regards to project management and implementation.  The PMO will assist OIT with prioritizing projects based on the University’s strategic direction, cost of implementation, resource impacts, and tactical requirement.
