The Hesburgh Libraries Project Management Office (PMO) organizationally resides in the Office of the University Librarian. PMO serves as a central resource to steward the successful planning and execution of organization-wide strategic initiatives as well as projects and processes from every program area, as assigned. PMO fulfills its function by helping the Libraries to establish consistent project management processes and therefore, to ensure transparency and accountability for project results. The PMO’s scope of work includes portfolio analysis for strategic initiatives, management of strategically important and complex projects, optimization of project operation, and foster project standards through consultations and training.
