Project Management in the Public Sector


Government projects need to address constraints, challenges and risks that are not normally present in private sector projects.  This seminar explores the role of unique legal constraints, public accountability and diversity of stakeholder interests in shaping government project management best practices.  In addition, it analyzes the special characteristics of government procurement processes, government contract provisions and project budgets dependent upon utilization of public resources.

This seminar covers the management of government projects from the perspective of government agencies as well as that of business organizations that contract with government agencies.

The seminar content is applicable to all levels of government:  federal, regional and local. It is consistent with the principles of the Government Extension to the PMBOK® Guide as well as with the PMBOK® Guide itself.
