How can State departments be sure that by engaging the CA-PMO, they are not bringing on a control agency insider?

CA-PMO’s goal is to improve the successful outcomes of projects by providing exceptional project management services through qualified, competent project resources. CA-PMO resources will work with the client department as a part of the client department’s team and will report to the Project Sponsor.

Since CA-PMO does not have any control agency authority, CA-PMO will be subject to all control agency policies and procedures, just like client department staff. Similarly, ITPOD will oversee CA-PMO’s performance related to project scope, schedule, and cost just as it would oversee the performance of the client department staff in executing reportable aspects of a project.
