The Project Management Improvement & Accountability Act (PMIAA)

On December 14, Former President Barack Obama signed The Project Management & Accountability Act of 2015 into law.

This new law will improve United States federal government project and program management by:

  • Creating a formal job series and career path for program and project managers
  • Developing a standards-based model for program and project management
  • Designating a senior executive responsible for project and program management policy and strategy
  • Leveraging an interagency council on program management to share best practices


According to PMI research, only 64% of government strategic initiatives ever meet their goals and business intent - and government entities waste $101 million for every $1 billion spent on project and programs. The reforms outlined in the PMIAA align with PMI member input that indicates organizations who invest in program management talent and standards improve outcomes, accountability and efficiency.
