CA-PMO framework release graphic with concept, initiating, planning, executing and closing icons

The California Department of Technology’s Project Management Office has designed the California Project Management Framework (CA-PMF) to provide state project management practitioners with a solid foundation for project success.

This new framework replaces the project management guidance and tools that were previously included in the California Project Management Methodology.

The CA-PMF offers guidance and insight on project management methods and approach (through the use of resources, tools, and templates), as well as narratives detailing the justifications for why specific activities should be performed. The CA-PMF is designed to be scalable to accommodate the various needs of public sector government projects.
