IT Management with OMB 300
Within the US Government, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Exhibit 300 defines the way in which Government agencies need to plan, budget and acquire and manage all of their IT assets.
Each year, Government agencies submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a Capital Asset Plan and Business Case—the exhibit 300—to justify each request for a major information technology (IT) investment. The exhibit’s content reflects controls that agencies have established to ensure good project management, as well as showing that they have defined cost, schedule, and performance goals. It is thus a tool to help OMB and agencies identify and correct poorly planned or performing investments.

Product and Project Dashboards
In addition, SpiraPlan provides real-time project dashboards that let all stakeholders have an up to the minute view into the cost, schedule and performance of the project as well as have insight into the key project issues and risks that have been identified.
Furthermore, the program portfolio views in SpiraPlan let the executive leadership of the agencies have a single unified dashboard of all their projects in one integrated view.
One of the major contributors to missed project milestones and programs that are over budget is the lack of a formal risk management program as well as a lack of understanding of how the probabilities and severities of risk can correlate in unexpected ways. For example, it can be hard to prioritize risks without an understanding of how to rank a rare but catastrophic risk against a likely but manageable risk.
SpiraPlan includes and integrated enterprise risk management module that is tightly integrated into its core requirements, project and program management functions to give you a holistic view of a program, including risks, schedule and quality.
