Senate Re-Approves PMIAA
The Program Management Improvement and Accountability Act, which goes to President Obama for signature, seeks to improve efficiency with the U.S. federal government though enhanced accountability and best practices in project and program management.
The U.S. Senate has unanimously re-approved S.1550, the Program Management Improvement and Accountability Act of 2015 (PMIAA), which will enhance accountability and best practices in project and program management throughout the federal government.
