Project Management

ITS PMO collaborates with our University partners to implement enterprise technology projects that help meet business obligations and that benefit our UConn community. We encourage consistent project management practices that help the University of Connecticut fulfill its mission and strategic goals.

Current Projects:

This data mart will support institutional reporting for the Core-CT HR and Payroll transactional data, and empower self-service reporting.
