The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Program Management Improvement Accountability Act (PMIAA) Support (EA-1.2), within the Office of Enterprise Assessments (EA), coordinates DOE implementation of the PMIAA, a law enacted in December 2016 to improve program management within the Federal government. The office supports DOE’s Program Management Improvement Officer (PMIO), James Owendoff, who is in the Office of the Chief Financial Officer. In accordance with Office of Management and Budget (OMB) guidance, initial agency efforts related to the PMIAA will focus on three areas: program management governance and policy, program performance reviews, and program management workforce capabilities.
