OMB Mandates for Capital Planning and Investment Control (CPIC)
A solution using MSOffice Sharepoint Server 2007

Over the past decade the OMB and the Executive Office of the President has been working diligently to put better transparency and oversight into the business of Government. With the goal of creating a process that is specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-bound (SMART), the OMB continues to drive continuous improvement in the delivery of America’s most vital programs. At its heart, these many efforts are focused on implementing a culture of responsibility and governance into the use of American public investment.
Even in the best of times, selecting the optimal investments can be a complex undertaking and decisions are more often based on emotion rather than driven by a rational process. In today’s economic uncertainty, US Federal Government agencies face multiple challenges in making better decisions about how and where to spend budgets.

During this Tool Time we will discuss the OMB mandates and demonstrate an automated solution for Capital Planning and Investment Control built on Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and the Enterprise Project Management (EPM) Solution.

This exciting solution provides executives with powerful collaboration and analytical tools designed to:

•Develop business cases to support the OMB 300 (or less complicated business cases)
•Improve decision making and portfolio selection
•Control projects throughout lifecycle
•Identify and assign the right resources
•Deliver projects on time and within budget
•Drive visibility through reporting (including Exhibit 53 reports)
•Evaluate and measure performance of investments
