Under the general direction of the Deputy CIO, the Technical Project Portfolio Manager establishes the project portfolio strategy and manages the portfolio of IT projects through a PMO.

The incumbent also works with supervisors to facilitate the coordination of staff resources across projects managed by the PMO. The incumbent coordinates the project management team to evaluate and recommend work processes to introduce efficiencies and consistency across projects.
As the lead project manager, the incumbent manages high-risk, high-visibility, and high-impact projects for ACIS. This is done using industry-standard best practices (e.g., PMI PMBOK) for project management leveraging activities such as project charters, scope and goal definition, status updates, change management, project timelines, project close-out and lessons learned. In addition, the incumbent helps to develop project management best practices for ACIS and aids in the training and adoption of approved best practices across the project management team.
The incumbent must have broad knowledge and comfort with technology and be able to work closely with highly technical staff on the planning and implementation of moderate to complex IT projects. These IT projects can include topics such as software development, hardware deployments, and implementation of new IT services.
