Building Capabilities in Project Management across Tasmanian Government

Building Capabilities in Project Management across Tasmanian Government
The Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) is pleased to announce an agreement has been signed with the Tasmanian Government for whole of government membership. 

The Tasmanian Government, acknowledging the importance of project management, is committed to ensuring that project professionals across the State Service have access to the most contemporary knowledge, advice and support. As part of this commitment, the Department of Premier and Cabinet is delighted to announce that it has entered two exciting initiatives with AIPM.

A whole of government membership agreement has been signed to provide State Service employees the benefits of this wide-ranging partnership across all Departments, Agencies and Tasmanian Government Businesses (Government Business Enterprises and State-owned Companies).  

By becoming a Corporate Partner of AIPM, all Tasmanian Government employees are invited to become part of Australia’s leading professional member body for project managers and take part in a partnership with the TAS Chapter of AIPM through tailored initiatives for the public service and access the AIPM suite of products and services at the exclusive AIPM organisation member rates.

As an extension to this agreement, AIPM and the Tasmanian Government are also pleased to announce that members of AIPM now have access to the Tasmanian Government Project Management Guidelines hosted on the Office of eGovernment (Department of Premier and Cabinet) website, which can be accessed at http://www.egovernment.tas.gov.au/project_management 

The Guidelines, associated templates and fact sheets are part of the current suite. The Government is reviewing the Guidelines and its approach to project management.

The Tasmanian Government Chief Information Officer, Glenn Lewis, stated “the Government welcomes the opportunity to collaborate further with AIPM to raise awareness and build capabilities in project management across the Tasmanian Government.” 
 
AIPM Deputy Chair, Mike King, in welcoming the membership agreement, acknowledged the strong contribution of Government members to AIPM in Tasmania and the wonderful opportunity now provided to all members to access a highly regarded resource.
