PMI is excited to announce that 
The Program Management Improvement 
and Accountability Act
 

was passed 30 November by the U.S. Senate
 

The bill will now go to President Barack Obama for signature and enactment. This legislation will make improvements to program and project management policy across the U.S. government. It is a landmark achievement for our profession, and it would not be possible without the support of members like you.

PMI has been working since 2014 on the development and passage of the PMIAA with Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) and Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA). The reforms outlined in the bill are driven by PMI member input and research; they will change program and project management within the U.S government by:

• Creating a formal job series and career path for program and project managers
• Developing a standards-based model for program and project management
• Recognizing the value of executive sponsorship and engagement
• Breaking down silos through an interagency council

The PMIAA validates what we as project professionals already know: investment in program management resources and standards within an organization improves outcomes, accountability and efficiency.

Again, this achievement wouldn’t be possible without you; so thank you for being a PMI member! Please celebrate this success and help us thank our Congressional sponsors by sharing the news:

#USSenate improves outcomes, accountability, efficiency in govt w passage of #PMIAA. http://bit.ly/2gc24lo Thx @SenJoniErnst @SenatorHeitkamp @SenBobCasey #EfficiencyCaucus #pmot
