The government’s requirement and goal is to rely on systems and technology for a safe, secure, and dependable method to provide services, provide mission support, develop products, administer daily activities, and perform short- and long-term management functions. Agencies and departments must also ensure data privacy and security when developing and implementing information systems in conformance with a broad framework of privacy and protection policies.
The intent of Oxford’s PMO services are to improve the quality of government systems, during—not after—an agency’s software development life cycle process has executed. Oxford’s PMO methodology utilizes the specific agency’s software development life cycle framework as the basis for its phase-based PMO activity workflow. The focus is on the results obtained at the end of each life cycle phase, assessing deliverable technical quality and design compliance with applicable software life cycle and project planning requirements. An example of Oxford’s mature and customizable framework servicing our clients is presented graphically on the right.
